Drawing Day 2009

drawing day logobaby orangutan sketch for drawing dayYesterday was Drawing Day, an attempt to get as many drawings done and put online in one day as possible. Each person may only submit one drawing, and it must have been created on Drawing Day (not before). I submitted mine to RedBubble.

Since I was out of town most of the day, I put together a quick sketch of the baby orangutan at the zoo. I love her messy hair! I'd like to do a more formal drawing of her at some point. I used sepia and sanguine Conte pencils, dark sepia Cretacolor pencil, and a touch of pink tinted charcoal around the mouth. I blended with a tortillon to smooth it all out. Happy Drawing Day!

I love her hair.

And I love that you said "tortillon". I almos never hear that, usually it's just blender!

I didn't even know what a tortillon was until last year. The only blenders I had ever used were the stumps, so I like to distinguish.
