I Am the Rabbit by Danielle Trudeau
Needed an excuse to go crazy into detail. Those vines were painful until I developed a system to just get ‘er done.

I gold leaf’d the crap out of a skull drawing, can’t wait for this to hit the wall!

Anonymous asked: Hi! I am so jealous to guys able of drawing scientific illustrations and I am wondering how are you doing that! I am especially inspired by pencil drawing, as anthropologists or biologists do that. Can you give me some hints or advice a learning strategy? I am chemist and always have quite some ideas and images in my had, but I would really be happy to be drawing it wth a pencil. My email is: rfmold(at)yahoo-dot-com Thanks a lot!

Hello there!

If you’re interested in doing something along the lines of scientific illustrations, an important thing is that you are able to achieve some accuracy for what you are drawing, and for this it is awesome if you reference. Whether it be photographs or from life (my personal favorite), referencing is definitely recommended! And don’t be afraid to just try things, they may not always turn out on the first try (I know mine sure don’t!) but try again! Practice makes perfect :)
