I keep going back to the zoo to draw the Visayan Warty Pig. Such an interesting shape.

More play-practice and exploration!
Random shape...

Stream-of-thought drawing...

Zoots was out for blood after his back-alley steampunk reassignment surgery was interrupted.

Dame Judi Dench was fierce in Pride and Prejudice...there may be more drawings to come of her.
