Kiwi Sheep

Even in dairy farming country where I live someone always has a few sheep. I don't know which breed this one was possibly Perendale but then again, it could also be the traditional Romney. This is the first sheep I've ever attempted. It's not bad considering. The colours are far better with the real thing.

Kiwi Sheep - Work in progress

 I started this yesterday. The quality of the image isn't very good. I've taken it in bad light which has made all the colours look rather strange. The real thing looks far better. I took a photo of this sheep a couple of years ago. I'm not sure which breed it is but it looked like a Perendale. It's well under way towards being finished. I'll post a better image of this tomorrow without the bad light to spoil the picture.

King Lion

I think I've learned quite a bit from doing this study. This is a partial head study rather than the entirety of the animal. I can see faults already but that is what it's all about. Drawing and then learning from what is being done. I still like it even though it is a little dark in places and more lighter areas could have enhanced the features. It was fun that's all that matters.

King Lion - Work in Progress 2

Still adding in the details of the fur with an H pencil. I'm not quite sure how this will turn out. It looks a little dark right now. I'll remove some of the layers with a kneadable eraser later on and see how it looks. One thing I do know. Cats, now matter how big or small they are aren't easy subjects to draw!
