I love critters. And I'm constantly sketching them. Unfortunately, most of those sketches haven't made it on this blog because I always forget to scan them or get distracted with other projects. So I'm going to make an active effort to share some of these critters on the blog.
Its funny how you sometimes think you understand how the anatomy of a certain animal works, only after doing some research realize that your mental picture was a huge oversimplification of the amazing designs found in nature. When looking up reference images for these sketches, I was fascinated how the armor plates of an armadillo interlock perfectly, allowing for a large range of motion and protection. Also, they're surprisingly cute.
