Hello, first of all I want to apologise for any recent comments that have been lost on my blog due to a technical fault with blogger, I appreciate all your encouraging words thankyou :) I have been tied up for the last month unable to really get on with any of my works and I'm now itching to get back to it! Unfortunately as I've had a lot of thinking time it means that I've already planned new pieces in my head that I'm eager to get going, but I'm staring at a growing pile of unfinished pieces!
Therefore here is a quick update of my elephant drawing, I have drawn the mothers leg and have started the babys body. As an abstract form the detail on the side of the body is quite fun as it feels like you're drawing an arrid landscape of dry cracked earth, this is juxtaposed with the fragility of the ear edge. At the moment I've only been using 4H and B pencil grades, the latter being much softer and darker than you'd expect. I need to get back in the swing of things :)
