SB Project: Sketches 15 and 16
Here are a couple more pages for the Sketchbook Project.
Giant tube worms form colonies around hydrothermal vents in the deep ocean. The worms have a symbiotic relationship with chemosynthetic bacteria that live inside their bodies. In exchange for the hydrogen sulfide and other chemicals that the worms absorb, the bacteria produce organic compounds that sustain the worms. Giant tube worms don’t even have digestive tracts!
Sundews are carnivorous plants. They produce a sticky mucous that attracts and traps insects, at which point sundews secrete digestive enzymes to break down the prey and absorb nutrients.
I thought I’d post the life drawing sketches I did while at Illuxcon. On Sunday there was an Art Jam with a couple live models, music, and props. I drew the girls for a bit, then switched to the guy sitting in front of me when I got bored.
I deliberately elongated her proportions and changed her clothing.
Love this model’s nose. She has such a pretty face. 🙂
