S.I. - On the prowl by SunMoonDragoness S.I. - On the prowl by SunMoonDragoness
-Fullview please! The smaller version looks blurry-

Very happy to have finished this one. It was a lot of fun and I'm quite happy with it too. It's my second to largest pencil drawing I've ever made (it's A2 size) and this was drawn on the most uber great paper for pencils ever. XD We have really great paper here at school and I'm thankful for that. XD And this was made with a very large range of pencils. We had to start at 9H and slowly work our way in layers to 2B. C: Was quite fun even though I wanted to redo/quit everything about halfway because it didn't look very great but I'm glad I persevered and finished it. ^^ Oh and time taken is around 80 hours. :)

The reference for this was a 1:7 real lion muscle structure plaster cast we have at school. :) Which is such a pretty and awesome thing and more than 100 years old. C:


Art is to me

Well done! I'm doing cast drawings at school at the moment now too. We need to draw the head of an old man, but then with charcoal. Not nearly as many pencils as this xD But nice. Love the smoothness of the shading, nice work :3

Oh that sounds like fun :3 Casts are so pretty, we have bunch of them at school here. And drawing with charcoal is hard XD I always keep smudging things up with my hand and goodluck with your drawing! C: And thankyou!

It's so hard and takes sooo long xD We have to measure points by eye and if it's not perfect.. we have to redo it xD
We have a 'maul stick' as he calls it to prevent the smudging from happening. You lay the end of the stick on the board and your hand rests on the stick, instead of the paper. It does help xD
Thank you btw xD I'll need it haha! I want a good grade! xD
You're welcomes c:

Ooo, this is so beautiful. The lightning seem so nice, the lion almost seem as if he could walk of the monitor. I can honestly say I admire you for drawing A2 with pencil - it's such a huge format! I once tried to draw on B1 but wasn't able to finish it because it took such a long time and it really got on my nerves on a half way to finishing it. The result of the time and effort you put into this is amazing.:)

It's my dream to be able to do this one day. 
9H? That exists? O.O I did see an 8B pencil once. I wanted it but it was too expensive, I'm broke. XD 
Really awesome work! What kind of paper did you use? I'm now curious.

This is magnificent!  Your value distribution is (once again) superbly handled.  I especially like all of the subtle work you did on the tendons and muscles in the front legs.
