Zoo Doodles (Zoodles?)

A few of us have been going to the zoo every couple of weeks to go sketching. So far it's been fun (though I still feel like I'm relearning how to draw animals). Here are a couple of pages I scanned:






Unfortunately, I completely forgot to bring sunblock to this last outing. My skin tends to get confused by prolonged exposure to sunlight, and this time around, I ended up with a couple of sunburned areas, some tanned areas, and more freckles (but only on one side of my face). Meanwhile, my legs did not tan at all:

Kids, wear your sunblock.
