Mountain Harem by Misted-Dream Mountain Harem by Misted-Dream

This is a pencil drawing I've been working on over the past couple of weeks just because I could. I also wanted to test out some new pencils I bought while I was in college, but never opened them. So here you are! I guess this is as close to a Christmas image as you're gonna get from me this year. ;P There's snow on the mountains, so that counts, right?

Lol, anyway, this was initially supposed to be a quicker drawing, but it got much more complex when I started to really like how it looked. And yes, I did fade it around the edges like that in real life.

Derwent pencils, H, HB, 2B, 4B, and little bit of 6B. My own refs and a combination of WetCanvas RIL images used.

SOLD

I don't think I'll ever understand how incredible you can be with pencils :bucktooth: The whole drawing in itself is great and all those details - oh don't get me started on the details :heart:

This is a wonderful and detailed drawing!
I love elk as much as you do, and I really enjoyed watching them when I was in Yellowstone Park! In the country where I live, we havenŽt got such big animals as bison, elk, moose, bears and wolves :( (the biggest ones are red deer)

Thanks so much! I thoroughly enjoy watching all sorts of wildlife--can't ever seem to get enough of that. :)
I've never even seen a red deer in person, but I think they are very regal and lovely, especially when they're in the mist. Where are you from? I've been over to Europe a couple of times (France and Germany, specifically), but haven't had the chance to be out in the wild areas of those countries.

No problem!

Me too, I love watching wildlife! Even the rather "common" animals like crows, ravens, hedgehog, squirrels, rabbits, foxes....
What IŽd LOVE to see in the wild are wolves. :heart:

IŽm from Germany.

Sometimes it's the most simple of animals that are really fun to watch. I was just watching a squirrel not too long ago that was eating some seeds and jumping from branch to branch. I've only seen one wild wolf (a black one in Yellowstone), but he was super far away that it was difficult to tell he was even a wolf, lol.

When I was there this spring (Berlin) a friend and I visited the Berlin zoo--very fascinating place! I wish we had a zoo that big here.

Yes, it was fun. The cat at my Grnadparent's house made things funny. He just sat there and watched my Grandfather's train.
