Autumn Rituals by Misted-Dream Autumn Rituals by Misted-Dream
Ah yes, this one has been taking me a while to finish as well. But it is finally done! I've really wanted to make some more wet fur as of late (or at least, damp) since I haven't made any in a while and it looks so cool. :meow: This is the third of four drawings I plan on putting in my show. I only have to make one more in approximately two weeks. It'll be a stretch, but I think I can do it (it'll be mule deer).
This is basically a bull catching the scent of a nearby cow during a nice, rainy fall day.

11" X 14" on smooth bristol board with mechanical pencil. Refs thanks to WetCanvas RIL, though the bg and wet fur were made up by me.

EDIT: So I was informed that this image has been stolen and is on another blog. Therefore, regretably, I have decided to put watermarks on my images.

Lovely drawing :) The detail is perfect. Sorry to hear it was stolen, what a shame that the few ruin things for the masses :(

Thank you! :aww: Yeah, apparently the person put it on some sort of blog (and mentioned that it was not theirs), but it's not very nice to take something that isn't yours without asking. :/

the textures are excellent in this!! The antlers caight my eye first, the subtle directional lines really bring out the form and shape of them. And the coat texture is lovely too. Also I really like the misty, damp, rainy atmosphere of the background. Fantastic :)

Thank you! That was a really tricky angle to figure out as well as to shade. I was thinking of doing a painting with a similar atmosphere sometime in the near future as well--after I finish my duck stamp entries, of course. ;)

I love this to bits! It's as if he's looking up into the sky enjoying the rain, however as I read in your comment he's got other things in mind! :giggle:

This really is phenomenal! :heart:

Oh yeah! I'm going home this weekend to celebrate with my family. It's also my sister's ~Bleu-Celeste birthday so she's coming home as well. She's two years younger than me, but we were born on the same day.
