San Diego Zoo Sketch-a-thon by YoukaiYume San Diego Zoo Sketch-a-thon by YoukaiYume
FULL VIEW PLEASE!

Warning! GIANT file is GIANT

Sketches from the San Diego Zoo! I was going to post these individually, but then I got lazy and decided to vomit them here. I wish I were better at drawing animals... that's why this calls for... more trips to the zoo!!! (yayexcuses!)

:icondrunkpugs: and I were spending terrible amounts of time drawing while our friends waited for us. D8 I feel especially guilty since I was trying to paint everything on site too. Bah.

Thank you :iconpretty-omi: for inviting us!

Watercolor pencils! <--omg so fun.

P.S. No, I do not live in San Diego, so No, I can't hang out with you San Diego ppl. Sorry!

When I was out in San Diego a few months ago, I really wanted to visit the zoo...I wanted to see the pandas. However, thanks to the group's schedule, I didn't get there. That was the one sad thing about the entire trip -.- Thanks for posting the pics! They look great!

I love these. They're unique but also remind me of Pocahontas, with the soft yet vibrant colors. I love them all but...I kind of have a soft spot for that otter. And the giraffe. And (what looks to me like a Dik Dik?) and the kitty at the end for the tree pose. All those birds just have such beautiful coloring and look so fluffy. I do not have enough praise for this, really!

I'm so jealous you got to go to the San Diego Zoo - I want to go to California pretty much for that reason alone, lol.

Anywho, these are awesome. I love the two antelopes and the birds especially. Lovely and graceful, all of them. :D
