Zoo trip (11/24/13)

Instead of our usual class session for 11/25, we went to the Columbus Zoo. As part of our session, we were told to bring multiple medias so that we can get some variety in our drawings. Once we arrived, a small group of us decided to go to the aquarium in order to warm up.

After warming up, we went to another nearby exhibit featuring one of my favorite animals: manatees.

Once done, a member of our group wanted to go draw the apes, so we did. Not many types were out, but we did see some gorillas.

Afterwards, another group member wanted to see elephants which were in the Asia section. The indoor area we sat in also had a rhinoceros, so I took the opportunity to draw both.

The next exhibit we went to was across from the area we just left and houses several Asian animals.

For this last exhibit, I wanted to go to the reptile house. Since I knew this would be the last exhibit we would go to, I used a slightly messier medium that would also force me to work quicker and with less detail.

Media used: Charcoal

Total Number of Drawings: 101
