Zebra in Graphite and Charcoal

May 5th, 2005 (Cinco de Mayo)

In a continuing effort to improve my graphite drawing ability, I have drawn a zebra in graphite and charcoal.

For those interested in the technical details, I used a Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper in 9" x 12". The majority of the zebra was drawn with 2H, F, HB, 2B, and 4B pencils, both wooden and mechanical varieties. I then rendered the background in charcoal, starting with a base of soft vine charcoal and lightly blending it with felt to even out the texture. I then overlayed this with 4B Charcoal pencil and smoothed once again with felt.

Colossus

April 27th, 2005

Here is a drawing I recently completed of Colossus from the Cincinnati Zoo. The reference photo is one I took back in 2002. The drawing has a greater range of grays than appear in the scan. The photo may appear slightly darker than normal on some monitors.
