There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

I just forgot to tell: during the eighties, a day, I was walking in a zoo in Paris. A young lion, proudly, was pacing up and down its bige cage. I started to sketch it, (going not to look at it without doing anything during all the afternoon).

And then...

@sanjay Thank you !

And then ? I continued...

In the beginning, I sketched the nose, then an eye, after an ear and finished ! The animal moved its head... And I understood that instead of sketching detail after detail I had to learnt to "globally drawing". Thus I started to attend the drawing workshop. And in parrallel you studied this discipline story through the centuries.

And so... I have no merit, being only passionated by what I discovered. And of course you have to work, to practise yourself each day. Daily work only can lead to something, somewhere. But where ? I don't know now !

And seriously, I am not gifted ! Only hardworking may be. "When we like, we don't count"...;-)

Amazing work, you're extremely talented.
I used to draw comic book characters all day long when I was a kid, may be I will pick my passion up again and turn it towards wild life, like you.

Well done, phenomenal work.

Thank a lot @Pckts !

I had this passion enough late after my university studies (Geologie). I was 27-28 years old. I don't know how old you are, but it is never too late to take up again it. I can guarantee you.

I'm slightly older than that, but not much. haha

But I know I would enjoy drawing, its just sitting down and doing it. I'll have to see if I still have the patience for it some time soon.

I think we should just generalize the title to all types of wildlife art @Spelaea.

I haven't draw in a long time, but these are a few years old:

At least you started and thats the beginning of any passion. More than I have done, I need to get back to this. It is probably good for the soul to turn off your surroundings and just draw.

Wow, great topic. I am very glad to see that other posters share the same passion for the art.

You also know that I love to draw great cats and other animals, you already know my images so I would like to share other ones. I have a few old ones and other more new and accurate.

Thanks for this great idea guys! Lol

I was drawing this guy (orang utan) in Berlin zoo... 10 meters from me, we were in open air. Of course I was watching it attentively. After few minutes I stopped to watch it in order to finish the sketching. Suddendly I received an apple core on my head. All people around me were laughing. My neighbour, a japanese tourist, told me it was the ape which threw the apple core. Probably disappointed because I didn't watch it no longer...
And believe me: The apes aim very well !

Chimpanzees: they are, by far, the most aggressive among the big apes. Several times, because I watched them, they charged me even if their heads hit the glass wall of the cage when we were inside...
