ANIMALS IN....HAMLET!


I wanted to do a piece that involved combining historical costume and themes with animals. The result was the previously posted "Otto Pug Bismarck". I guess that didn't quite get it out of my system, though, so I came up with this- and Orangutan performing Hamlet. 
I produced this with graphite on vellum, the method I have been working with for the past few months. It's been great for fixing tonal problems before going into photoshop and trying to fix it there. This way I get a good mix of traditional and digital work together.
