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.
