Original animation movie

I made an animation movie using Maya Dynamics at a school Digital Hollywood.
The title is "Rocket".
It's inspired by "Kick Buttowski: Suburban Daredevil" 'cause I love it. Funny cartoon!

SketchCrawl #37

Tokyo SketchCrawlers went to Yokohama this time.
But I went to Machida Squirrel Garden, a sort of a zoo featuring squirrels before going to Yokohama. Because I loved to sketch the squirrels! XD

The bus stop, on the way to the zoo. It takes about 20 minutes by bus from Machida Station.


Japanese Squirrels
It was hard to sketch squirrels because they moves too fast. It was the croquis rather than sketching.

Eurasian Red Squirrel

Prairie Dog

There are also Guinea Pigs.


American Red Squirrels



People enjoyed to feed Pallas's Squirrels. There are about 200 squirrels in the space.


Also I went to Yokohama in late afternoon.

Additional sketch is the warehouse.

Loveble grassland's animals are playing games. :D
Coyote, Bobcat, Black-tailed rabbit, Prairiedog, and Burrowing owl.

I didn't know well about this animal, only the body is black and has scary eyes, untill I found it has long fluffy tail like a squirrel.

Moreover, aye-aye has incisors that constantly growing! Even though it's a Primates!

Hey, isn't it lovely? Like a squirrel!
(I'm afraid it became too cute...)

Giant and Pygmy squirrels

A fancy collaboration of the biggest squirrel and the tiniest squirrel.
The Tufted Pygmy Squirrel is from Borneo, and the Malabar Giant Squirrel is from India.
(I mention that this time, I don't mind exactly what the species are the MOST in the world.)

A birthday gift for Titash.

Titash Meerkat created by himself.



I drew this for hearing the news Japanese river otter declared extinct. (

The otter seemed to be the subspecies of the Eurasian otter. So we can see the cousins of them... it's sad news though.

 However there are still people who're looking for the Japanese river otter. We don't know really they have gone.
