Days 11 and 12: Gorilla and Goat
Numbers 11 and 12 are sketches from some photos I took a few years ago at the Atlanta Zoo. The one above is a gorilla. The one below is a goat from the petting zoo section.
How to Draw Animals by Jack Hamm. It's a small book but it's packed with good information. A lot of space is spent on structure and comparing the structure of various animals. Heads, feet, eyes, ears and noses are compared. It discusses how to use a house cat as a model for a big cat. I've found it very helpful.
