Animal Quick Sketching



The summer holidays started this week and the whole family went to the Berlin Zoo to celebrate! πŸ™‚ We had lots of fun, fantastic weather and stuffed ourselves with delicious ice cream!

It was also a little premiere for me, as I tried myself the first time on animal quick sketching.

It came as an absolute surprise to me that most animals didnΒ΄t want to stand still until I was done with my sketch πŸ˜‰ How very unprofessional of them, tsk, tsk! πŸ˜‰

Anyway, I tried my best to “catch” them πŸ™‚



This little kitten was of course not part of our trip to the zoo but belongs to a friend of mine. ItΒ΄s such a cute thing to watch doing it whatever comes to its mind and then not knowing how to get down again πŸ˜‰

It had such an exasperated look of despair that I had to try to catch it with my pencil as well as with my arms! πŸ™‚ (The latter worked out better than the first πŸ˜‰ )

  1. Unbelievable! They definitely look like animals. No matter how long I took to sketch an animal, quick or painstakingly slow, It would still look like an airplane. Or boat.

  2. I like the sketches, you have done a great job – all the animals are recognizable, and have a character. I like the mink or ferret – the one full of whiskers. Very cute, looks curious and busy πŸ™‚

    • Thank you very much, Chris!! πŸ™‚ I sure will look out for those better behaving models πŸ˜‰ Or I could just take a photograph and sketch from that, although that wasnΒ΄t the purpose of the excercise πŸ˜‰ Cheers!
