Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy
These are some sketches I did for my Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy class a few years ago. On the left is an anatomical cat skull, and on the right an anatomical lizard skull. I want to make a series of ink drawings of a variety of vertebrate skulls, so hopefully that will be coming sometime soon. These drawings were made for studying, so I had to balance realism, universality (in case we were tested on a skull not quite exactly like the one we practiced with) and simplicity (to easily distinguish the different bones of each skull). I also had to, you know, have time left over to study them. It was super fun.
