WIP Bison

Canson 220 gsm Paper. 30 x 18cm

Time I started drawing.  A nice free day at last to draw. I am doing the complete animal so it will take me awhile. Lots of hair...  It's good practice.   It's pretty much at the ugly stage on the head. hopefully it will get better as I work on it.

I don't think you ever have any ugly stages! I think our American Bison are such majestic creatures so am glad you chose one for your return to drawing!

this is great. we went up to a farm one time to buy half a cow and they also had bison at many different ages. I actually got to feed one. in order to feed it you have to actually stick your hand in its mouth it looks sooo nasty and slobbery that you dont want to at first but it actually feals really dry.
I like your idea about doing the whole body I really should try that some time.

Doreen Cross said...

Thank you Andrew. Oh I wish I could have been at the farm. not sure I could put my hand in the Bison's mouth but you never know :D
I'll look forward to you doing the whole Bison body or whatever animal you choose.
