Haha, so here's something I've been working on in between things and it's finally finished. All that vermiculation on the owl's feathers was intense.
This is a Great-Horned Owl and of the subspecies, subarcticus. So it's not your typical medium to dark brown in coloration. This one was a very light tan--almost white-ish. I believe it's one of (if not the) largest subspecies of GHO's. Anywho, I saw this guy/gal in my backyard after a bunch of crows gave away its presence. Poor thing just wanted to sleep.
Too many hours for a smaller drawing--close to 30 or more would be my guess. 9"X 12" graphite on smooth bristol. Refs are my own.
Another drawing I've been working on this past few weeks in between paintings and other work. For me, anyway, it's difficult to separate buffalos and dust--they always look so nice together! So I figured I'd take that idea to the extreme and really make a dusty environment. This is depicting the buffalo after he has just shaken off the last of the dust from a good roll.
Graphite on 14" X 11" smooth bristol. A combination of my own refs and some from the RIL on WetCanvas.
