|Beyond-ism drawing for animation|
2010 Sun Xun
While this panel looks very much in a traditional chinese style it is in fact one of many drawings for a coloured animation called Beyond-ism. His subject is 'life-cycles, food chains, teeming life, all overseen by the 'magician'.
The drawings are in ink, pencil, charcoal, watercolour, and the textures and patterns worked experimentally over and over.
Here the shapes of the animals are again styised, but in an altered classical chinese style, with the emphasis on shape and texture rather than their relationship to other figures or the background.
Again, the range of tones is broad overall, but narrower within each figure. The background is highly textured in some places but not in others, possibly to represent a map of the world.

I have also found some sculpture and textile art animals which I want to add here.

Ink, cement paint
What appeals is again the intriguing regular irregularity,
and the insect-like effect of the scratchy symbols on the back of my neck
|Cauda Equina by Keith W Bentley|
This one's not really about drawing, but makes me laugh.
What appeals - the huge size,
the way the coloured slats are placed so as to emphasise the movment of the animal

I couldn't call myself a textile person unless I included something from Alexander McQueen exhibition Savage Beauty...animal art clothes
What appeals? The use of fabric and paint to give the texture/shape/ emotional impact of animals and birds.
