Cats and Other Beautiful Beasties!

So for the past week I've been studying a bit more animal anatomy, but mainly that of the cat family.  I am by no means an expert, but I must say that it did help me quite a bit at the zoo yesterday.  It was a lot of fun, as was the first week of school!  I'm super excited for this year: everything about it is just... magical, haha!

The first image is a compilation of a whole bunch of animal studies, and the second image is all zoo drawings.  Some of the scans turned out really light, so in order to darken the lines a bit, a few artifacts were made visible.  Nothing too bad though; I hope it doesn't bother anyone.

Yay, second year!

Magical Zoos and Speedy Drives, 9

So, this was the last zoo trip for the summer, and therefore this will also be the last animal post.  It will probably also be my last post of the summer before school starts again (Tuesday), so expect lots of schoolwork again from then on.

As for the zoo trips, I hope to go to the zoo lots of times throughout the schoolyear still, because my skill-level is not even close to where I hope to be.  However many times we'll be going, I don't know: It all depends on the schedule, homework, etc.  I do hope to go as often as possible, so, who knows, maybe we can keep up the summer pace :)  I probably won't be posting zoo drawings after every trip anymore, but I'll do compilations every now and then.  Until then, have some of today's drawings: not my greatest drawings ever (that tiger...), but critiques are always welcome.

School in three days... YAY!!!
