Last Sunday I joined a drawing class on Zoom led by an illustrator called Timothy Pond, showing how to draw different animal and bird skulls. It covered varying approaches to drawing, including measuring with your pencil and drawing boxes, and also touched on the common features of animal skulls (including human) - teeth, eye-holes, jaws, etc.

The class was certainly different, if a little frustrating due to the limited time we were given to draw each skull; usually I prefer to take my time, but looking at the pictures afterwards, I realised they weren't quite as bad as I'd feared. Sometimes drawing someone else's choice of subject matter, at someone else's pace, can be strangely liberating.
