Teddy bear......

This adorable guy came up on the weekly challenge at Drawspace.  Siks did a great job photographing him, beautiful shadows and highlights. 
I have been doing sketches in charcoal lately.  It is a great medium to work with.  It lays out really fast and mistakes can be corrected on the fly.  I finally stopped trying to work small and have taken out a big 11x14 inch sketch book to draw in.
I tried to give the bear some texture by dotting on some charcoal and then using my figure to tap in more texture.
Now I have to figure out how to preserve my pictures so they don't just disappear.  I suppose a spray finish.
