ROM Bones

Animal skeletons from the ROM bone room (not open to the general public). The room was so small and packed that we had to split into three groups, each with only about two hours to draw. The assignment was to do a 5 minute sketch followed by a longer study from a different angle. I've got three 5-10 minutes sketches and 2 longer studies. I completed one later using my block-in and photo reference I took.

Thanks for the compliments everyone! :)

Hodges - the aardvark and five minutes were all done there. I blocked in the last wombat but I didn't finish it there. I used photo reference to complete that one, and working from photos usually flattens out the drawing. Funny thing is that Brian liked that one the most, said it had the most volume and perspective... I guess the block in must have really helped.
