I did a little project for myself the last couples of days. I took a setting paint it and use it as a background while I illustrated everything in the space. Using a lot of the reference pics I took of the Tom Petty Tribute show I saw recently it was a great opportunity to explore color light on the set and people. I've known other artists to try this approach while doing life drawing, which I think is quite interesting! Maybe I'll do it too at some point.
My friend Malte (work can be seen here) and I went to the Berlin Zoo today and drew for almost 6 hours today. It was fair weather, and very crowded, but we managed to get a ton of drawing in. I was very satisfied with a good number of my drawings this time. I'm giving major thanks to Mr. Aaron Blaise for his tips in this video about drawing a moose and if it's not in that video it's in one of his many other amazing ones! All of his tips are very helpful. Being able to quickly draw in the pose and the anatomy before getting into the details was very helpful. Since zoo animals tend to pace and have a set path.
It was fun drawing at the zoo again! :)
