Goes to show what a lil practice and studying can do.

I've always been pretty good at drawing animals off the top of my head. When I worked at the LA zoo, as a caricature artist, that came in handy. Many times kids wanted to be drawn ridding or feeding a zoo animal. I could usually draw any animal they wanted, freehand, no reference or construction. the animal likenesses were decent, but I always strive for perfection.

I've been studying giraffes and rhinos lately. From books, videos, pics on the interwebz, you know, all the usual sources. and, I've studied them enough to be able to do an adequate sketch. However, I strive for more. Like Claire Wendling's animal drawings. That's my goal, to be able to caricature my two current muses like Claire has in one of her books. If you happen to know what I'm talking about, you know how great her work is.
Well, here's some sketches I did in church, off the top of my head. No ref.

My participation for Illustration Friday.

The topic was "superstitious", so I decided, since I am "very superstitious" and a huge Stevie Wonder fan, and a fan of art, and a fan of illustration friday, that I would do this piece in honor of those three passions. Hope you all like it.

Drawing board.org participation for Battle for the land of OZ.

Hey Y'all. I probably left you all hanging. Just been a lil busy. Well, here are some really rought concepts for MY version of "Battle for the Land of OZ".
Like I said, I fanially came up with a twist that I'm happy with. Here's the gist of the story.
It's the late 1870's, the British have begun their war on the Zulu nation. One young witch from a western tribe has managed to keep the army at bay. And prevent them from breaching her village. Back in Great Brittan, the queen isn't pleased. so she hires an elite band of mercenaries to take out this troublesome witch. A in Irish punk, Dorothy the weapons expert, "The scare crow" a sniper, "the Tinman" a heavy duty gunner whose armor clad body is impenetrable, " the cowardly lion" the medic who's large hairy physic is his namesake. They are all commission to take out this young witch at all cost, and cost is irrelevant.
The young witch has only her colony of winged vervet monkeys and he rloyal african wild dog Toto to aid her in her defense of the village. Will she save her village, or will the mercenaries take her out quietly ?

Well, here are the rough concepts. I have yet to flush them out a lil more.
