Finally, it's done! For the past two weeks I've been toying with details trying to get it right, and I think I finally did. The original is 18"x24", and it and prints are available.
Next on the drawing board will be an active scene involving a crocodile.

Today is Drawing Day, and for the event I put together a quick drawing of a pair of African hunting dogs. I've had a bunch of photos of these guys for a while, and I really want to do a large drawing with several of them in it. However, I realized that black and white would not suit these wonderfully colorful dogs. So... that gave me the idea for this drawing - a small-scale test, if you will, with the tinted charcoal that I have not used in some time. I do need to practice more with the tinted charcoal. With such a limited range of colors it is hard to get the depth I like. But I think this test is promising.
Happy Drawing Day!
