Draw An Animal Hospital

      Doodling an animal hospital will be tricky if you don't know how to draw particular medical equipment. I've included, at the bottom of this post, some basic visual depictions of those things found in a human hospital for this drawing project. The Betty Boop video above portrays animals with human characteristics. This idea is called anthropomorphism.
      According to Wikipedia, "Anthropomorphism or personification is any attribution of human characteristics (or characteristics assumed to belong only to humans) to other animals, non-living things, phenomena, material states, objects or abstract concepts, such as organizations, governments, spirits or deities. The term was coined in the mid 1700s. Examples include animals and plants and forces of nature such as winds, rain or the sun depicted as creatures with human motivations, and/or the abilities to reason and converse. The term derives from the combination of the Greek ἄνθρωπος (ánthrōpos), "human" and μορφή (morphē), "shape" or "form"
      This doodle exercise should depict animals as patients inside of a hospital of sorts. You can also include humans or animals as the doctors and nurses.
Think about the uniforms your doctors and nurses will need to be wearing.

Things seen inside of a hospital.
