Finally committed to a drawing I've wanted to do for the last 6 months. This is going to be my biggest detailed drawing to date at A2 size (16.5 x 23.4 in). The photo I'm working from is amazing... Purchased the licence for it just yesterday and here I am nearly 3hrs in already. This will be a long term project and the intention is to sell this piece when finished.

Should be good Krissy - big impact in this image. What did you do the background black with?

Thanks Linda, I used graphite powder for the background. Needs another few layers to make it smooth yet though.

Made some more progress over the weekend with texturing.

Nice, thanks for explaining about the background - graphite powder, I was about to ask. :D

P.S. one of the first images I drew when I was just beginning this journey was a Rino. It was not that great, but I was quite proud of it. :lol:
