Zoo Sketches - Lizards

I went to the zoo today to do some sketching. The lizards were quite cooperative, especially the Gila Monster. What was cool about the Gila was that he was in a monster type of pose too. I then went outside and drew an Iguana. Unfortunately it moved before I could finish the sketch. I took the sky buckets over to the Takins, but found out that their exhibit is closed. I miss the Takins, they are fun to draw!

Figure Drawing and Figure Quick Sketches

I haven't posted many life drawings lately, mainly due to the fact that I have not done any drawings that I have felt good about until recently. So here is a figure drawing I am quite happy with and some quick sketches that I did last night in class at Watts Atelier. For not taking a quick sketch class in years, these came out much better than what I was expecting. Quick sketch is tough, but its actually a lot of fun, you get a bunch of different poses you wouldn't typically get in a longer figure drawing.
