WIP - Hippos 2

I am making steady progress with the hippos. Given the detail of their skin and the sharp contrast in small spaces, I am glad I chose graphite for this drawing. Graphite is also shiny on paper which helps promote the idea that these hippos have moist skin, although that is more easily seen in person than in a photograph.

Hopefully I will have some time this weekend to work, so look out for the finished piece early next week!
