Hello dear readers,
I have been neglecting this blog terribly lately, and I’m sorry for that. It’s been a busy time for me, as I am working on several art projects, but some of them must remain a secret for a bit longer as they will be gifts for friends. I also have gotten a hard copy of my novel here in hand and have been proof reading it one last time before approving it. Very soon now, I will have a number of copies printed, bound and shipped here to my door. They will be available for sale. More on that later. 🙂
Here is something I can share with you though, at long last. I am currently drawing a Dall Sheep, but I’d prefer to call this handsome animal a ram. When they have horns like this, they need the strong title of “ram”.
This is not yet finished, as I still have a lot of work to do on the fur as well as some more contrast. The textures of the horns are pretty intense…who knew there were so many ridges and bumps on the horns of a ram?
This is 8×10 inches in size and I’m working on Strathmore 400 series Bristol Smooth paper. I’m using Prismacolor Fine Line Markers sized .005, .01 and a bit of .03. You can see these pens pictured below.
And finally, here is the actual work-in-progress image of the ram.
I hope you like it. Have a great day, and thank you for looking.
