Drawing Animals

Chinchilla drawing sketch by Mayra Ruiz-McPherson

I have nothing against drawing animals and will draw them if I have to.

But generally, drawing animals is not something I typically seek out to do.

However, in a recent children’s book illustration assignment for grad school, our class had to:

  • (a) realistically draw 20 animals, then;
  • (b) create three animal characters for a children’s book.

I’ll share the latter in a future post but for now, here is one of the 20 realistic animal drawings showcasing a furry chinchilla.

You can see several other animal drawings here.
