Your sketches are clean and well-done. I'm glad to hear you are taking the initiative to draw live animals at the zoo. Nothing beats drawing from life.
However, as much as I appreciate your clean, tidy sketches of hornbills and leopards- I'd like to see a little more chaos. Try to boost your speed by giving yourself a limit of five to eight minutes. Mix those sketches in with some gestures. All and all I just think a large, chaotic piece filled with gestures, quick sketches, and maybe a few fleshed out 10-15 minute pieces would be great. I'd love to see it. Keep it up.
