Today I met up with Shannon Beaumont, who was my AWESOME tutor when I took the Animal Drawing CGMA class – and two of the other UK based students, James and Alice.
We went to ZSL London Zoo to sketch – turns out I didn’t do much actual sketching, as it was fascinating to watch the others’ processes, but I did shoot a lot of video and stills reference. I find them SO useful to pull from when i’m working.
I uploaded some of the fruit bat footage – terrible actual camera work, but aside from that, I thought it was useful for wings and movement reference, so thought i’d share it…
And a very small selection of images from the day… Not that great in terms of actual photography, but when i’m at the zoo I tend to speedily switch between video and stills to try and capture as much reference from every angle where possible… But there’s occasionally the odd nice one 🙂
Lens used, for those interested:
