Animal illustrations

Animals done in different styles and techniques. I did these example projects for my tutorials and the book.

I like animals, they make attractive subjects for my tutorials and books. Their features such as hair and skin or eyes are interesting to demonstrate vector techniques. So I have drawn many animals for my writing. On top of that I sometimes just practice drawing or take part in events like »Inktober«. These are some of the drawings.
