You Voted for it...

orangutan eye drawing in sepia Conte pencilIn my recent poll, I offered a few options to try out my sepia Conte pencils on. The giraffe took an early lead, but the orangutan won in the end. My plans for the orangutan are big: 18"x24". I have a pose worked out, and I'm trying to decide between bristol vellum and bristol smooth papers. This one is going to take a while because of it's size, but I'll post updates along the way.

Here's a sketch I did of an eye on vellum for practice.

Thank you very much, Rich. Yes, I would love to help out the orangutans. I'm guessing this drawing will take about two months, so I'll contact you when it's finished. Thanks!
