I took this photograph of these takins at the Los Angeles Zoo. I thought the baby takin was so cute. They were pretty far back, they were about to drink from their water source that was against the wall, but the little one still seemed to be very aware of me photographing him. The takin is a goat-antelope that is considered endangered in China. I hope that you will enjoy this photo!
I love to paint animals, you may see some of my finished paintings at www.lisarusso.com if you'd like.
Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden. I loved her long flowing hair. Her eyes are closed and she seems lost in thought. I hope she is protecting the takin. I think she is most likely an angel fairy, although she could also be a mermaid or a goddess. I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.
I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in August. This is day 3.
This is a rough sketch.
