This drawing was so much fun to work on. This guy is a bengal tiger from the Albuquerque Zoo. I took several photographs of him as he paced in front of the crowd. In the photo, his body is actually to the left, but I thought it would look a little better with it to the right and the black background to the left. It really brings out those whiskers and his chin. As with my other charcoal/graphite drawings, this is 14x17 vellum, and he took about 12 hours total. Prints are available.
What's next? I'm not sure. I'm debating a few subjects, but I'm going to focus on getting my last few scanned and framed, and then I'm going to enter two art contests next week with them. Wish me luck!
