life drawing +

During the pandemic, I switched from drawing animals in real life, to drawing animals from videos. To get closer to the life drawing experience, I never paused the videos. I can say that after 100+ dog drawings I felt a lot of progress, and became able to capture the dog’s attitude and movement quickly, with just a few lines. Later I coloured some of them digitally. Here is a small selection, but you can find all of them at the link below:

During 2023. I did the same with cats, drawing them from live cat shelter cameras.

These drawings are from life, of pets and from zoos:
