If love was kittens and your heart was a city I would lay seige to you and fling their carcasses over your walls until the disease and the smell and the sight of them had so demoralized you that you fell to me.

Because of the nice spring weather yesterday I have made a zoo-expedition. Here are a few of the fotos I made. Feel free to use them as a reference for drawing or painting but please ask me when you want to use them otherwise.
does anyone have old zoobooks by chance that they could scan? those magazines have awesome anatomy muscular and skeletal for all sorts of animals.
If no one has done that by december, and it's not breaking any copyright, I'll scan some (if we still have them) when I go home for winter break.
Those were awesome.
Adventure Dog: my work
zoobooks are still in print and mostly use the same illustrations from the 80's. You can probably dig up the ones you want on eBay. I have a pretty good collection myself :3
Here's a great resource for birds-
Found these two searchable databases
Oxford scientific. Click on download comping image to get full sized image. Includes animals, plants and people
Frank Lane Picture Agency. Thumbnails only, but still some nice images
Hope some people find those useful
Here's a huge( and i mean huge) directory to all sort of pics
There is nothing wrong with using a photo to help you see things.
No one complains about life drawing,
so take a photo.
its easy, and will improve your piece greatly."
some chimp photos
Elephants, Gorillas, Koalas, Manatees, Mixed-Herbs, Orangutans, Parrots, Rabbits, Rhinoceroses, Sheep, Warthogs, Zebras:
This has ALOT of photos of just about any animal that you would want, but the have a watermark over all of the pictures. But it is still VERY VERY worth checking out, alphabetized and organized by type of critter.
Use the search tool on the left, a very kick ass site.
Large good pictures of animals.
