Wolf Pack
Animal Portrait
Graphite pencil drawing
fredrik eriksson

170g A4 (cheap schoolpaper quality)

The tools:

2B Mechanical pencil for grids and outlines
6B-9B Cretacolor Monolith Graphite Pencils
dark graphite stick
A package of erasers sharpened in all different shapes
and eraser pen
Blender and cotton sticks.

Drawing four wolves really tested My determination. I am used to drawing fur. But an entire wolf pack was a little intimidating. But I wanted to draw this because I really liked the posture of the two standing wolves. Tails between the legs and the fur raised. Telling us not to come closer! :-)

Around 6+ hours to complete.

I hope you like it!

Mechanical pencils 0.3mm, 0.5mm and 0.7mm HB, 2H, 2B and 4B. Lots of cotton wool, tortillions and several rubbers. Was drawn on A2 heavy-weight cartridge paper, with the finished drawing measuring 16"x16". Completed August 2014. 21 hours over 6 days.

This is 'Max', or to use his full name 'Maximus Decimus Meridius' (no joke!). He was born April 2004 and sadly died April this year, aged 10, having lost his battle with cancer. Max is a Cocker Spaniel, and was drawn 16"x16" from a wonderfully detailed photograph.

And I've lost who I am, and I can't understand why my heart is so broken.

Welp. This is part of Amoux's past. This is him, realizing that he's finally alone(yes that is a dead wolfie, in the background. One of Amoux's last pack mates.) If you read his background you'll understand this picture more throughly. But..this is slightly vent art for me as well, it's been a tough time lately. I can relate to Amoux in a lot of ways. 

There's like a  95% chance I will write a story for this, but it'll have to wait till 2moro. I'm exhausted.

Mechanical pencils 0.3mm, 0.5mm and 0.7mm HB, 2H, 2B and 4B. Lots of cotton wool, tortillions and several rubbers. Was drawn on A2 heavy-weight cartridge paper, with the finished drawing measuring 16"x12". Completed August 2014. 12 hours over 4 days (not including 3 hours for my 1st failed attempt!). The hardest part was the ball and patches.

This is 'Oscar', the winner of the 'Playful Pets 2014' competition. He is a Ruby Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and aptly his favorite game is playing with his ball. He was drawn 16"x12" from a photo of when he was 3 months old.
