Giraffe and calf pencil drawing progression


More progress today on the calf's body,apart from the usual layering ive started to add some shadows to bring a bit more life into the piece.i will probably go darker still on these shadows but i'll hold off until ive got both animals complete and can judge the overall tones a little better.unfortunately yesterday i didnt manage to get back to the drawing board with a classic case of 'life' getting in the way and so the whole piece hasnt progressed quite as far as i'd of hoped.nonetheless another day's work should see this one complete.
