1. Facts About Beavers

Beavers are herbivores and primarily nocturnal as they are more active at night. They have weak eye sight but make up for it with strong hearing and sense of smell. They are semi aquatic but tend to be slower while on the ground. There are two known species of beavers around the world, the North American beaver and the Eurasian beaver both of which interestingly enough never mix with each other.

The young ones of beavers are called kits during the first year and yearling during the second. They are social and live in colonies of several beaver families. A typical beaver family consists of a male and female with around 2 to 4 kits.

The Canadian national animal, beaver is also depicted on their five cent piece and even feature on the 1849 pictorial stamp. Ironically, in Canada once the beaver was almost hunted to extinction due to the love for its fur.

Swimming comes naturally to the beavers and they are brilliant at swimming and can even hold their breath under water for more than 15 minutes. This trait helps them evade some of the predators easily.

The beavers have a very unique alarming system which used to alert other members of their colony in the region. When under threat beavers successively dive into water while forcefully slapping their broad tail into it. Amazingly, the impact is pretty loud and audible over and under water to great distances serving an alarm to other beavers around.

Beavers are quite an amazing member of the rodent clan, the second largest in the species to be precise. Already they have made a name for themselves as ‘builders’, it is because they are known to have the characteristics of making dams over streams and rivers.

The beavers have teeth which keep growing all through their lifetime. These are used to cut the trees and build dams.

Surely some of the above facts about beavers were not known to you till today. Read more..

What is a Marsupial?

A marsupial (mar-SOO-pee-al) is a type of animal that has a special way of caring for its young. When a baby marsupial is born, it is too weak and frail to live outside. Instead, it crawls inside a pouch in the mother’s body where it can be warm and protected. It stays there until it grows big enough to go outside.

Kangaroos and koalas are marsupials. Most of the Australian animals in this book are marsupials. Marsupials live in other parts of the world too.
A young marsupial is usually called a joey. You can sometimes see a joey sticking its head out of its mother’s pouch.
All marsupials are mammals. This means that the young ones drink milk from their mother’s body. Joeys do this while inside their mother’s pouch. 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…

Basic head layout
There are few characteristics of a head that is relative to almost everyone, this similarity in measurements will be your guide if you are to construct a face when drawing a portrait.

The eyes are positioned below, above or right at the center of the head’s perfect-center level. It is usually aligned with the upper tip of the ear.
The head’s space above and below the eyes’ location are equal.
The nose wings are usually aligned with the tear ducts, and its nose ball is aligned with the ear lobes (this similarity changes depending on the person’s age as the ears grow bigger).
Both tips of the mouth are nearly aligned with the center of both eyes.

Although you will surely encounter a person that has a little difference on these measurements, it would be easier for you to identify his or her unique proportion value if you have the knowledge about what is most usual.

The familiarity to different angles of the head is essential when drawing faces.

Head shapes differ in every angle. The position of each facial feature gradually changes as the head makes a quarter turn. And as it turns further on one side, their sizes slightly change and the features reveal their unseen angles, thus, totally changing their shape.

A head facing in a perfect front view would have two equal sides most of the time, while a head in a quarter angle view shows the outline of the nose bridge which cannot be portrayed perfectly when in front view. The lips would reveal its thickness as it loses the exposure of its further tip. And the further ear and eye will lose its exposure as the head turns further on the side.

These natural gradual adjustments happen when the head moves horizontally.

Unlike horizontal movements, when a head moves in a diagonal direction it changes the diagonal thickness of the head dynamically, thus, the facial features follow.
Each facial feature comes closer together as the head leans further. The nostrils become totally exposed as the nose ball clearly establish its distance from the plane (face surface).

The thickness of the lower lip can be easily conveyed as it overlaps the upper lip, and the eye shapes would appear flat.

When the head moves downwards, the nose (depending on its height) would overlap the lips, and the eyebrows (depending on its thickness) would slightly overlap the eyes. The height of the neck would be hidden as the top of the head becomes clearly conveyed, totally changing or rather hiding the face’s horizontal height.

The facial ridges of males are more defined and prominent compared to females, especially the nose bridge, Brow Bridge and the jaw line.

But there are few cases in which the shape of a man’s profile looks more feminine than usual or vice-versa. In this case, you have to rely on the facial features he or she have to clearly portray his or her gender, such as thick eyebrows or any facial hairs for men or pouty, glossy lips and long eyelashes for women.

Primary sketches
Rough sketching is an easy approach to build up your drawing skills by letting your hand gain familiarity on how the forms and details are expressed by lines. This is a good way of enhancing your creativity through experience and can build up your hand and mind coordination rapidly.
Build the form through several lines until you figure out the primary shape of the subject. Sketching is the way to express your imagination freely and portray your ideas visually through lines.
Start with a simple animal figure. Try to draw an animal in profile/side view, draw a simple fish or dolphin, whatever you think is easy for you.
A figure in side view barely involves dimension values and does not contain any kind of foreshortening (overlapping proportions to depict the figure’s perspective).
Worry less on how many line strokes you need to make just to obtain the primary shape of the animal. Be expressive on your line strokes and produce different kinds of lines to construct a figure that is distinguishable to your subject.
Start with thin and barely visible lines with light hand strokes.
Try to construct the primary parts of the figure. Depict the animal’s mass and try proportioning them properly.
Choose the lines that best define the primary shape of your figure and thicken them.
Get back to the line marks you have made and observe what linings depicted the shape of your figure. Darken these lines to make them more dominant to the other markings.
When you already have a good outline of the figure, clean up your drawing and erase the unnecessary line marks you no longer need.
Erase the unsuccessful outlines so you will be left with the effective one (the ones you darkened). And clean up the inner portion of your drawing to have as space for the details.
Now try to draw the details. Draw the eye, fins and gills.
Continue your illustration with the same process you did before. Start with light thin lines until you make the most successful line stroke. Make the fins curvy as if it’s floating on the water. Once again, thicken the most successful lines and erase the unsuccessful sketch marks.
Once you have the primary details, draw the secondary details such as the lines on the fins.
At this point, the permanent (successful outlines) lines should be thinner than the previous outlines you have made but it should be as dark and as visible. Make parallel curved lines to give some details on the fins, follow the outline curves of the fins and adapt how it bends until the lines reach the outline.
Now for the texture, don’t fill the whole thing with overlapping curves to illustrate the scales, just try to imagine that the scales are there but they aren’t totally exposed (as if the light is too bright for the little details to be visible).
Draw the scales on the sides near the main outline with dark lines then make it lighter and lighter as it gets nearer at the center.
Remember that the shape of a fish is a bit round, so draw the scales in a curved line, and sustain this curve along with the other scales on the upper portion of the fish’s body. Read more…

Introduction
The world of elephants is a fascinating place! There is so much we can learn about them, and yet there are still mysteries about them waiting to be revealed. There may be stories you have heard about elephants. Now the question is, ”Are those stores fact or fiction? Are they true or false?”

One bit of information you may have heard is that elephants have a good memory. That is very true! It is so true, that it is believed that elephants have a better memory than humans do. Elephants can remember other elephants that they may not have seen in years. They can also remember being treated unkindly by someone even though many years may have passed.

Another story that is often thought about with elephants is, “Are they afraid of mice?” You might have heard that elephants fear mice because they can run up the elephant’s trunk. But the answer here is that this story is not true, and there is no proof of any kind to support this.

It may not surprise you know that the elephants of today are related to the Ice Age Mammoth. At one time there were over 350 different species of elephants, yet today we
have only two species left! Can you name the two species? What you may be surprised to learn is that elephants were not always the large creatures you see today. In fact, in prehistoric times, the elephant was as small as the size of a cow or pig. Would it surprise you to learn that the elephants of today are related to the sea cow known as the Manatee?

Did you know that when the elephants flap their ears they do it for a reason? Or do you know what jobs the elephants use their tusks for? An elephant’s tusk can be smaller on one side than the other. Do you know the reason why? Did you know that a female elephant will spend her whole life in one herd, while the male elephant usually live their lives alone sometime after the age of 14?

As you can see, there are many interesting things that can be learned about this tremendous sized animal with the ivory tusks. Read more…
