I went to the Museum of natural history this Tuesday. Mostly went to draw the animal exhibit. I feel I still need to practice drawing animal legs, especially ungulates’ legs. I’m trying to avoid making them look like four sticks. Drawing the exhibit presented a certain challenge since the halls were very dark. And also I get self-conscious when people look at what I’m drawing as I’m drawing it.
As an aside, I do get sad thinking about the animals in the exhibit, especially considering how rare some these animals are today. Really makes you wonder about the future of biodiversity on Earth. Maybe future generations will only know about tigers through a museum exhibit.
Here are some of the sketches I did.
