Chinese Crocodile Lizard and Red Panda
Couple of animal sketches from a little bit back. Had these sitting on my desktop for a couple weeks and forgot to upload them.
As usual, I was digging around on tumblr for reference when I found some photos of animals I liked, and decided to use them as drawing practice.
It kinda amazes me that I’m willingly dedicating my time to a lot of this detail in my drawings lately, but it’s definitely helping my observation skills. Maybe I’m learning to be more patient? *shrugs*
I do recall the red panda drawing being the more annoying of the two to work out. I was really on a “no shading” kick, wanting to imply the value using hatching and things like that… but it just wasn’t working no matter what I did… so I compromised and did a bit of both, which seemed to be all the picture needed. Turned out OK, anyway.
These are gorgeous.
Imagine if you suddenly woke up one day and your whole life had been a dream, and you’re actually a completely different person living a different life in a different world…

The start of a great adventure…
when our paths cross,
my heart beats an impossible rhythm
that only echoes your name
through every chasm residing in my lungs.

So I finally gave in and decided to start a tumblr…
First up is a repost from my blogspot. This was a drawing I worked on in FireAlpaca, using a photo reference posted by Greg Manchess from the Muddy Colors blog.

Pirate ladies, ahoy.
