Just Ahead of the Storm by Misted-Dream Just Ahead of the Storm by Misted-Dream
This drawing has actually been done for a little over a week, but I haven't had time to upload it until now. It has taken such a long time to complete, just simply because I've been working on finals for other classes. Of the five drawings I've made for this class, it's not necessarily my favorite, but it's still good enough. Sorry for the poor quality as well.

11" X 14" Bristol board with a mechanical pencil. The only refs I used were my own--for the clouds and face; everything else was unreferenced.

SOLD

Incredible! How do you manage to get the antler texture and fur textures?

Misted-Dream Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Thanks! I just try and imagine how the textures feel in real life and then try to duplicate that with the drawing.

I absolutely love the fine detail of the fur. It must have taken you ages. Everything looks in proportion with the exception that I think the head could be slightly larger but that may just be me. Besides that outstanding work. He looks magnificent.

Thank you! The face actually took the longest, but once that was done, the rest of the body went pretty quickly. And yes, I noticed that too after I had finished shading that area, so I agree with you! :XD:

Wonderful piece as always, I really like the hint of drama and love the work on the antlers. And grass too :faint: It looks like it was a lot of work!

Thank you! The grass actually took a lot less longer than it looks. I just layed down a gradient underneath, erased the individual strands with the edge of a small eraser, and went over certain parts in pencil again. :)
