Sketching skeletons at the museum

 I was at the Natural History Musem today for some sketching. Thanks to Profesor Boev and Boris Nikolov, i was able to see some "behind the scenes (and walls)"skeletons and bones...aaand spend the whole day there, with tones of dust and taxonomic!
The basic thing i was trying to do with those studies, was to capture the gesture of the skeleton, the movement and how the bones are connected with each other.
All sketches were made using bic pen.

First sketch of the day. Bearded vulture (Gypaetus barbatus) skeleton study

I couldnt resist it - chicken bones served

I was out of time, so ive decided to make some small skull studies. Bearded vulture.

At the end of the day i still had some time for a quick study.
