I read David Colman's book on the art of animal character design. Of the things he talks about, one of the most prominent is drawing from memory and using your imagination to fill in the gaps. Yesterday I did all horrible drawings of Molek the male orangutan at the TO zoo. I did a quick sketch in pen today, and coloured it with the random poor quality pencil crayons laying around my house. It's taken some effort but my orangutans are getting pretty good, and Molek is just so badass. Everytime he gets up, it draws a crowd. (He's got a 3m arm span, just wow!!!)
