I have made some more progress on the background of the eagle. I am finding I would much rather be shading in the eagle instead of messing with the background. I obviously need a lot more practice on trees and landscapes. I'll be putting that on my to do list, so hopefully one day it won't be so frustrating. Glad I had quite a few hours to work on it today. It was definitely needed. Also wondering what possessed me to draw so large this time?? And wondering how I am going to scan this when I'm finished so that the image is good?? hmmmm...I guess one struggle at a time.

The tiger is finished! It is approximately 9" x 11" on Fabriano Artistico paper. I didn't have to struggle using this paper, which was wonderful. Thank you Clive for the paper-type suggestion. Hope you all like "Luna". Now to figure out what to draw next???

I promised a few people I would have an update of the tiger's progress last night. So here it is, a little late on the promise :) Since the last update, I have done adjustments on the chin and a few other little adjustments on other parts already done. We'll see if anyone but me notices those ;) Then I have done the obvious work on the face. I have been mainly using 2H, HB and 2B leads.

I have finally started another drawing. Here is the progress on the drawing so far. I will try to take a better photo of it with actual light tomorrow. This is the Siberian Tiger, Luna, from Zoo Montana. Unfortunately she passed away on Sunday, June 28th of this year.
