Tree Kangaroo Skeleton study

Tree kangaroo skeleton

Skeletons are definitely the forms that I find most interesting to draw. It’s fascinating that beneath even the most plain-looking animal there’s an intricate armature that holds the organism together. This particular skeleton is that of a tree kangaroo (an animal I’d never heard of before), on display at the New Walk Museum in Leicester. To me, the most noticeable observation about the skeleton is the huge variation of shapes of the vertebrae making up the backbone and tail.
