Museum of Natural History Day

Last weekend Maasa, Natalie, and I went back to the Natural History Museum to sketch the animals. It was enough fun I think I'm going to make it a regular excursion from now on.

An Indian lion and Sumatran rhinoceros.

Rhino and Malaysian wild dog.

African lion and lioness. I know I exaggerated the lion on the left's face a little, but I couldn't really help myself since every single family that walked by the exhibit as I was sketching would scream, "Look, it's Mufasa!"

I've spent much of the past two years absorbed in figuring out the subtleties of the well-placed contour line. It's refreshing to start fleshing out planes again.
