Latest Zebra drawing completed

Here's my latest completed small pencil drawing of a pair of zebras.It measures 6" x 16" approx and once again ive left plenty of negative space to give somewhere for the animals to move into.i think the image looks better and is more interesting with all that space but I'd be interested to hear what you think of this series of drawings with lots of negative space and heavy crops.

Chobe Morning 5.5" x 17"

Completed my latest pencil drawing today.Ive called it Chobe morning as its based on an early encounter with a pair of elephants.As the sun was rising it cast lovely shadows on the animals and gave me plenty of lovely contrast to work with.
