During my last semester at at school in Germany I already knew that Disney was producing a film titled The Fox and the Hound. It inspired me to try and keyframe a fox jumping in a circle. My analysis was far from perfect, but it still turned out to be a useful exercise.
At that time my life drawing teacher encouraged me to draw with an ink pen instead of pencil or charcoal. Scary at first (you can't erase), I eventually really enjoyed using a thin felt pen.
These cows were sketched near my home on a farm (ballpoint pen). As far as animal drawing I needed to teach myself, the school didn't offer any such classes. Still, fond memories of learning, and hoping to work for Disney one day.
