Inked my skull study. Pretty proud they came out good
Quick pen and marker study of the spider I just found yesterday. Looked at him under my stereo microscope for a few hours and got some good studies in for future artworks. I’ll touch this up more tomorrow when I’m more awake. I just let him go outside, thanks dude!
My drawing from day 4! I also did some rough pencil sketches of drawings to be finished this weekend. #drawingaday #day4
Skeleton Study, Marker wash on paper. 17” x 14” 2012
And now I enter in history as being the first human being in this whole world who made a reference for giant anteater colours.
“Human dissection was limited and rules regarding dissection were prohibitive so two Japanese orthopedists, Ryoetsu Hoshino of Hiroshima and Bunken Kagarni of Osaka, carved detailed wooden skeletons of exceptional quality before 1810. One of these wooden skeletons is now in the possession of the Department of Anatomy at Tokyo.” The Beginnings of Anatomy in Japan, T. Ogawa. (1975) Okajimas Folia Anatomica Japonica 52(2-3):59-72.
