And more Animals

These animal drawings came before the last post, but I thought were worth sharing as well before getting to new stuff.

These pages were done with reference for general drawing practice:

For these pages I started with studies, but carried on to explore some characteristics a bit further - a great exercise to explore a subject.  The Kangaroo Mouse was lifted out of here for a digital piece once I had exaggerated a few things.

And lastly studies of Ken Hultgren and his amazing skill in capturing animal movement with great lines.  Some day I will draw this fluid without reference as well :P
