studying animals...

For my Bettybuild I needed information in how to depict the animals I wanted to use. I was mostly looking for what colours they would have, but also how they looked, how they were shaped etc.
So in doing a little research into that I ended up researching the animals themselves and learning a great deal about them!
I learned how different their furcoats were and looked when comparing summer to winter, how they moved, ate and lived. I learned a bit about how they behaved and above all how individual and unique they are! It is also a great excuse for bombarding you with animalpictures!

I will not go into all the details, but I just wanted to share a handfull of pictures I came across when browsing the web.... I hope you'll enjoy the pictures as much as I did!

First the moose...

Don't know why, but an image like this does not leave me untouched..

the wolf...
a great variety in colours

The image as often protrayed in the media and by many a hunter or farmer..
There is un unbelievable and incomprehencible hatred against this animal around here...
I wonder why....

The embodyment, next to the moose and bear, of northern wilderness.
