Do you know that some penguins could weigh nearly 100 lbs. (45 kg), while other penguins weigh in at just over 2 lbs. (.9 kg)? Some penguins lay just one egg, and they keep the egg warm by holding it on top of their feet! Do you know which penguins they are? Other groups of penguins lay two eggs, but only one egg will hatch. Do you know the names of those penguins? Were you aware that some penguins have black spots on their chests, and that these spots are different from penguin to penguin? There are so many interesting things to learn about these non-flying birds! Read more…

Introduction
Most of us are fascinated by these Ocean or Sea animals, because let’s face it, we don’t normally see them (unless you’re living near any the body of water), we only see them most of time in the aquarium and ponds or any man made or artificial body of water which is too limited.

Knowing the nature of aquatic animals; how they live in their habitat? Considering how large it is, how do they interact? How do they contribute to their marine environment? Aside from all these questions, which I suppose your wonder and interest is great, that curiosity is building within.

I’m glad that you pick up this book, as it proves that it is not just out of curiosity, but within you, an artist that need to be unleashed. That’s how you want to understand something; you want it to be more vivid, and that is why you want to draw them, not just a doodle or do a quick sketch. But you want more with a touch of realism. And that my friend, where this course comes in, you will do these exercises, with perseverance and dedication in your part. As this book will guide and help you achieve the skills, which you will need to become an Artist in Marine life.
Just follow this book step by step, and in no time you will be good in drawing Ocean and Sea animals. I promise you that, and you will be amaze of how good you are in drawing and everyone. Read more..

Sketching Animals – The contour shape
To properly construct the figure of any subject you want to illustrate, observe the structure of its form and find what kind of shape that can resemble its body structure.

The idea is to have a basis for portraying the mass of the figure. The basic shapes can be easily positioned upon your desired perspective or point of view.

• Obtain the most basic form of the animal you are going to draw.
• Use the basic form as a reference for constructing the main outline.

The main outline is the most important element for the subject to be distinguishable. Remember that the basic figure (basic shapes) is mainly a basis for its mass in the simplest form, this is just a way for you to see the subject as a multidimensional figure, and any change in position will gradually change the manner of how the figure should be outlined.

The primary outline may overlap, replace, or replicate the basic figure.

If the portions of your animal are smoothly spherical (circles used to simplify the form), then the primary outline would simply overlap or replicate the simplified form, but if the part has ridges such as the face of the animal (nose, eyeholes, cheeks etc…) then the basic form should be modified to illustrate the exact shape of the head.

• The basic forms will be your guide to properly lay out each linear shade.

Observe the first sphere. The linear shades do not bend properly with the contour shape but it can show the dimensions by leaving the center of the sphere unmarked. These are hatches that use the point of light as a reference.

The linear shades on the second sphere bend with the contour shape of the figure. The lines show the proportions by interpreting the form by flowing with it. These hatches use the point of light and the manner of its bend to show dimensions.

If you are going to use a single set of hatches to shade the subject, use the method of the second sphere, and then use the method of the first sphere to darken and enforce the visual depth.

Thin and light linings are used to portray the dimensional shape. Follow the contour figure of the basic form to properly portray the shade values according to its perspective Read more…

Facts about Hamsters

Hamsters are fuzzy little creatures that are easy to care for. There are many fun facts about hamsters. There are over 25 different hamsters in the world but only five can be kept as pets. The biggest hamster is 34 cm or 12 inches long and the smallest hamster is about 51/2 cm or 2 inches long. Hamsters are easy to take care of. The oldest hamsters live up to four years old. They can live for two, three or four years.

The heart of a hamster beats between 300 and 500 times in a minute. They have teeth that keep growing just like the teeth of rabbits. That is why they keep munching and biting stuff. It is important to give them dog biscuits to prevent them from biting the bars of their cage. They also need their toenails to be clipped using a nail cutter. If the hamster bites, try to put sandpaper on the base of their running wheels so that it can file the nails when the hamster runs.

Hamsters have a good memory. They can remember other hamsters that are related to them. They also respond to names. When you call your hamster by name, it will come to you. There is a hamster type called the Syrian hamster that comes in forty colors. If you love different colors, try keeping the Syrian hamster for a pet. Remember to keep a male hamster in its own cage. Keep two male hamsters into two different cages. Male hamsters fight and bite each other when they are kept together. These are some amazing facts about hamsters. Read more…
