1- For some reason...


... my laptop from hell is not allowing me to upload more than one image at a time right now so... here they come in chapters.
These are from a recent visit to the L.A. zoo, really cool place to go sketch some interesting characters indeed.

Tremendos, el color de este y el del cocodrilo son fenómenos.
Por cierto, lo de "..from hell" es de la serie Curb your Enthusiasm?

cata said...

Bueno, si esto es un sketch?....
Me encantan los trazos tan sencillos pero tan seguros...Wow!!!
Todavia queda mucho por aprender.
Un saludo,
Cata

Breathtaking sketches.

That laptop must be really acting up for you to call it the Laptop from Hell. I've not heard such strong language in a while from you! :)

The zebra on this post? Looks exactly like what Miss Trouble might look like after being woken up too early - 'Don't Mess With Me'. Funnily enough there was a fish in the aquarium I visited on vacation that was an alligator fish, something like yours! He looks very comfortable sunning himself in that sketch...

What else can I say? Such -beautiful- ink work and the gorilla looks content, and the zebra may be the one you drew before, but hey, he's posing for you!

Funny how zebras don't look like the Bandit in Sketchclub...

Nathan Fowkes said...

Well, no one will ever question your drawing ability.

A. Riabovitchev said...

Really AMAZING sketches!:O)

Miguel Martín said...

Con esos trazos haces que parezca tan facil hacerlos...

Thanks for the visit! I like your analogy between the zebra and Ms. Trouble! makes total sense to me

Daniel said...

All of your animal drawings are brilliant. They have a great sense of life about them.

SalBa Combé said...

Cuanto más veo tus trabajos más alucino. Esta cebra es espectacular. Me encanta el trazo suelto que tienes

Creo que nos harías un favor a todos si colgaras mas dibujos de animales. Son una pasada.

Juampa said...

Hola Marcos!!!

Qué buenos son también estos esbozos, cómo envidio tu soltura tio!!

Qué te voy a decir...eres un maestro!!

Lubomir said...

I love all these animal drawings!

Marcos Mateu said...

-Gracias Paco!

-Thanks a lot Tevik

-Thanks Joern.
The L.A. Zoo really is a cool place to go sketch, can't ask for a much bigger variety of animal species in a single 'civilized' place!

-Gracies Albert. Ets de Mataro? hi tenc molts bons amics jo alla. Jo mateix soc d'una mica mes al est, de Palma de Mallorca concretament.
salutacions (ido).

-Thanks a lot Ryan!

-Thanks Akina.

-Muchas gracias Alba (o Alma?)

-Thanks for your visit and comment Daniel.

-Gracias Salba. la verdad es que pienso volver al zoo en cuanto pueda.

-Juampa! muchas gracias. Encantado de tu visita!

-Thanks Lubomir

Hey Marcos! Great work, as usual. I think I've drawn that zebra a few times myself. I hope you're doing well.
