WIP - Leopard Finished
My tools are pretty simple. I'm using 6B, 4B and 2B charcoal pencils and a 6B charcoal stick. The 6B is usually my favorite, but I find I'm using the 4B more on this drawing. It is not quite as black or as soft, which makes the tree bark easier to handle. I'm also using a small blending stump for, well, blending, and a paintbrush and chamois for applying charcoal powder (chamois is great for large areas, paintbrush for small areas). Then, as always, is the kneaded eraser for highlights and corrections.
