Paintover from a quick 25 stint of sketching at Artis today. I want to take advantage of having a zoo so close by in the middle of the city. Tried a different, quicker way of layering the lights and shadows in Photoshop this time.
It has been so long since I went to sketch the animals at Artis! I was very rusty and only produced a couple pages which I wasn’t satisfied with. But I decided to try a quick paintover with the Cintiq, using photo ref for a color palette, and I think I was able to resurrect them a bit, at least.
We went to the zoo during our lunch break again today, and there is a new baby lion there now. It was constantly running around and playing with everything, and then it took a nap next to the mom and dad.
The Artis Zoo in Amsterdam is very close to the office, so yesterday I took a trip there during lunch with a couple of my coworkers. By the time I finished this croc it was already time to go back to work, but it felt like it was a very productive way to divert my eyes from the monitor for a while. Hopefully we’ll do this more often!
