I've set myself the challenge of drawing an animal for every letter of the alphabet, as a spur to transcend my comfort zone. Maybe I'll start again when I get to Z. Any comments or critiques welcome, and if anyone can think of a beastie beginning with X that would be nice too. A is for Albatross and B is for Brown Bear. The second image is based on a photo by Roger N Clark.

Beutiful pencils, very bright, the volumen is the correct, hope to see the next animals
Sorry for my poor english
The elephant is great, wrinkley. You have great pencil work
There is somthing unclear behind the dogs head, a shadow which is bordered maybe?
Such a good idea to draw an animal for every letter! Good luck with x...
The dog is very lifelike, and the elephant's wrinkled skin looks good! Keep this up.
Chompo: That's a pillow.
The fox is great, the way you put the hair on it, is very natural
Sorry for my poor english
No Crows this time around. Might do a Raven for R, unless it's a rinho. A Kingfisher and some other twitchy critchers, for now... The Meerkats are based on a photo originally by Robert Stacey. Can't remember where the bird or the Lemurs came from. Madagascar obviously is highly likely in the latter case.
This is a great idea to get out of your comfort zone, I love the pieces you've done so far
Nice sketchbook you have here !!
Its quite fun to guess which animal you will draw next.
How much time did you need to finish your last pic?
The eyes are really great.
I sometimes don't know what to do next myself. Last time it was nearly an otter or an oyster catcher, or maybe an osprey or an oryx.
The Owl took an hour or two. Feathers are not my strong point, actually. I usually like to draw the kind of bird that doesn't have feathers.
Quick sketch done in one go, from life, with no erasing. A very bonnie bunny is Lofty. Pure black except for his white front feet (hence Lofty Socks). He can be a bit stroppy, but was a very good model for this, not moving until I'd finished. Charlotte, his wife, moved into the way at one point, wanting in on the action, but then got pencil shy.
