cub progress - composition / surrounding



This is just a quick update, showing some slight alteration on markings and the start of the rock he is lying on and surrounding foliage. So far I have only used 2B and F pencil grades. I have been drawing the texture on the rock and balancing the values with the darker parts of the tiger, the background will then be a darker contrast to the cubs arm that is hit by sunlight. This drawing will in fact be the first piece where I have drawn in the whole background. He has found a 'sun spot' in his kingdom to sunbathe and relax :)
