Ng'ona means crocodile in Chichewa. I've always been fascinated by animals and in this piece I will use a one-line drawing I made as concept art for a sculptural anatomical study of a crocodile leaping out of water to catch an impala.

Done with sculpting the skeletons of the animals. Next step. posing the animals and then I'll dive into some hardcore sculpting !
I did a quick sketch to visualize exactly what I want to do. I might have a second impala in there but at the moment I want to focus on just two animals and I'll see but I think I should have time to pose and modify a bit another animal. I think it would add a lot to the composition. Sharing all the process, as rough as it may be !

My references for this project. I took about half of those pictures, going to the National History Museum in London or during past trips.

I've always been extremely fascinated by animals and, for some time now, I've been meaning to do a piece on animal anatomy. So here it is. I decided to take my one line drawing of a crocodile chasing antelopes and make it a 3D sculpture.
