WIP - Baby Elephant

This is the start of the elephant calf drawing. In the previous post I showed how I did the daisy with a frisket. I'm using charcoal powder on a chamois to apply the background and the base coat of the elephant. I started in with the eye with the 6B charcoal pencil, a very small blending stump, and the kneaded eraser. I am also using the indent technique to get the eyelashes and hairs visible. From here, I think I'll work down the trunk to get the left side mostly done before I work on the right side.
