Sketch of some fossil creatures

I need to sketch every day to improve my skill in this department. One thing I decided to try to sketch are the creatures I find fossils of. The first image is my attempt at a sea lily. The scanner took some of the drawing away but it also showed that I need to darken parts of the stem to make them stand out more.
This second image is of a trilobite that was drawn on newsprint. This paper type explains the background color around the drawing. I was drawing as I envisioned after looking at part of a fossil I have in a rock. So the creature is far from being correct but I think it looks neat.
