We have started the process of research and work for our seminars, and as such I have been doing alot of on site drawing lately at museums in St. Louis.
Here is an example:
As you can see, I have a thing for drawing giant buffalos. This is from the small western expansion museum underneath the St. Louis Arch.
I haven't done straight to pencil work in awhile. It was fun, but even more fun was the digital coloring. I stumbled upon this palette and I kinda like it.
