Art nights

Since last year, a few of my art friends have been gathering at my apartment every other week for an art night. It’s a good chance for us to do art projects that we couldn’t get to, or simply draw and sketch for a few hours. Throughout the year, I’ve been taking the chance to do some animal sketches 🙂

My first 3d print!

To make our wedding cake more unique, I have created this model based off our Chinese zodiac animals – Dragon and Mouse on top of a pile of our treasures. I sent to print in polyamide by i.materialise.
Here is a photo of the caketopper –

Animal Sketches and Studies

Drawing from photos may not be the best way to learn animals anatomy, but I just gotten the book The Weatherly Guide to Drawing Animals, and gave me the itch to do some quick sketches of animals.
