This past summer for my birthday I wanted to go to the zoo to sketch the animals. They had a great new exhibit called the Elephant Crossing - I'd never seen elephants so close before.
The guy on the top left was telling us all about the elephant exhibit before the elephants came outside.
Sketches from the Rainforest portion of the zoo.
The apes were hard to sketch because they moved around a lot, but I got some interesting gesture sketches. It's amazing how human they can seem.
I think the polar bear and the seals are my favorites. ^^
