WIP - Hippos

I have been eyeing one particular photo I took of hippos for several months now, and decided it was finally time to draw it. These are two of the three hippos at my zoo, the mother and child (who has to be at least a year old at the time I took the photo).

I typically work in just charcoal, but I am using graphite for this drawing. I haven't used just graphite in a while and thought that the texture of the skin would work well.

In this photo, the hippo is not quite finished. A little more work and I will start on the second one.
