It's always nice to see another artist's work station. And yeah, physical reference in front of you is the best...especially when you don't have to pay for the printing :)
I always enjoy your posts; this is a fun one to wander through.Love the rhythm in the looping pencil drawing.
Wow, I just get so inspired every time I stop by. The way you approach your drawings is just so refreshing! They're all just so much fun to look at! I'd love to see who you use as inspiration, if you ever get the chance. Thanks again for sharing all this awesome goodness!
Hey Andrew, what is that anatomy book? It's pretty hard to find decent looking muscle ref for pachyderms. It looks much better than the Goldfinger book.-I am a huge fan by the way!
Thanks for the comments everyone.Joe:Here is what inspires me:Zoos, Natural history museumsArtist:Jonathan KingdonPaul BosmanRembrandt BugattiPaul JouveBob kuhnCarl AkeleyCharles KnightBill PeetNicolas MarletCharley HarperPrehistoric cave paintingsChistopher: Those books are part of a 7 volume series titled "East African Mammals" by Jonathan Kingdon. They are probably my favorite books in my collection, with each volume focusing on a specific African mammal group. There is a volume on carnivores, bovids, primates, rodents etc.These are natural history texts, but the author is an accomplished artist and instead of photos he illustrates his books with hundreds of well structured drawings. Included are anatomical studies for every species he features along with gestures and more detailed works.The pictured book, volume IIIB, has rare studies such as black and white rhino musculature and detailed anatomy of a hippos head.Highly recommended for anyone looking for reference on African mammals.
that's valuable information, and you have written so passionately about them, must say,your drawings seem like a hybrid chapter of an anatomy book"how to go beyond the structure", INSPIRING like always.
Gosh Andrew, you're in a league of your own. You work is transcending the industry.
i was actually trying to count all the 'phants and wow...totally lost track! as always, andrew...soinspiring to see you brain up close! :-)
Thanks for sharing the books. I went out and bought a bunch of the Jonathan Kingdom books- they're fantastic.
wooooow. I'm really enjoy to see ur works ;) awesome!
