So I went to Zoo Atlanta today with Ralph and Stone (it's not the Atlanta Zoo... it's Zoo Atlanta... don't know why..). Anyway, it's a decent zoo, too bad my sketching hasn't been too decent lately. Here are some of my better sketches from the day. The Orangutan, Allen, is my favorite.
From the Reptile house. The Komodo Dragon was enormous.
The Rhino was pretty cool, but it barely stayed in one place and he constantly was hiding itself from the crowd.
So this is the Orangutan, Allen. There's so much character in his face. He reminded me of Harry from Harry and the Hendersons and Chewbacca.
This was a mother gorilla with her back to me, she was holding the newborn baby that was just born at the Zoo in July.
A Kangaroo head. It was really cool how close we were to the Kangaroos.
The lemurs were cool, but we were standing above them, and there's an annoying fence you have to look through, which really strains your eyes after awhile.
The first exhibit when you walk into the Zoo, are the flamingoes. I was drawing these, while Ralph was attempting to get an iced coffee.
