 :thankyou: EVERYONE, for your comments! 


VAL, where is your ‘drunken lion’?  I think I saw a funny video once of drunk monkeys who ate fermented fruit. ~Liz

 :confused:   UH-oh.... must be out on another pub crawl... he's disappeared! I'll have to go search for him on the other drive once we are up at the house. It was two firsts when I drew him. First lion, and first time using a grid.
Cheers, Val

Simple profile of lion from Pixabay.
Not so simple charcoal sketch on scratch paper.  Practicing lion’s face.  Charcoal and putty eraser.  Tried to remember how to draw with putty eraser.~Liz

use your 8B pencil to make the background as dark as you can. That will make the lion stand out better O0

 :urwelcome:  Do as Nolan suggests & you will  bring your lion out of its hiding place, and more into the open.     He has something of a human charm to him, Liz.   :smitten:

 :thankyou:  NOLAN, MEA, & PATRICIA for your comments.  I will use the 8B pencil for darker backgrounds next time!  What do you think about using black paper, Nolan?  Thanks for your advice, Nolan!


Thanks, Cath!  I want to try to get him to look like closer to the photo reference next time. ~Liz

You can use black paper and white pencil. I do show how to do that in the Sleeping Chimpanzee class  O0

 :thankyou:  Nina for your lovely comments.  I have just seen it now and my apologies for the delay in responding to your message but I have had to put my art on the back burner for awhile but I am getting back into it slowly. I have really missed my art.

He's lovely Liz  O0      I have to get back into drawing with my charcoal again, I find it works great for drawing on the sanded papers and saves my using up my pastels too quickly. It is a bit tricky, but like you, I just have to keep on practicing.
You must admit it though... it is fun getting a bit grubby!  :whistle:         ;D
Cheers, Val
