The Wild Life


Wildlife, originally uploaded by graphicartepsi.

OK, so my life is really pretty tame, but it was fun sketching the little creatures out at my veterinarian's wildlife rehab facility! I shot dozens of photos, too, and got some really usable ones...

Awesome!
Thank you! I had fun!

Do you draw from photos or are these from life? They really are wonderful - I love the expression in that racoon's eyes...

Those two pages are both, Casey! I sketched on the spot for some of them, but ran out of time and light and still had space on the pages, so I added some from the photos I'd taken. The closeup is from a combination of photos and sketches, and thank you! (The top of the fawn's head is from a photo, too!)

Great sketches Kate...I love that racoon, he looks just as naughty as they really are!

Thanks, Ronell!! I love raccoons, though I KNOW they're sooooo destructive. Clever, though...

You make them look so cute! Here, they are pretty much just pests, I'm sorry to say. I had a whole range of phlox in my mixed border, heavy with blossom. I say, I HAD. Thanks, deer.
But I do love your sketches.
Xoxo,

Oh my YES they can be pests! ALL wildlife can. I lost lots of fruit trees to the deer and raccoons...

But oh well, they were here first.*G*

And thank you, Sweet Xoxa, I love yours too!

Beautiful sketches! I have a huge soft spot for animals in my heart. The pictures of the raccoons are so cute!--Sherie
Thank you, Sherie! I love the little bandits!
