Howling ghost they reappear
In mountains that are stacked with fear
But you're a king and I'm a lion-heart.
~Of Monsters and Men ~ 'King and Lionheart'~
This drawing took a while and it was quite a challenge, both for new objects, like fur, and for new techniques - combining charcoal with graphite (for the first time!), but I'd like to believe it was worth it. I hope you enjoy it, as much as I enjoyed creating it.
It's based on a very inspiring photograph by the talented photographer Sam:
*HB and 2B lead mechanical pencils
*Charcoal pencil (medium soft)
