Deer Sketch

Materials: HB, 2B, 4B, kneaded eraser

Time: 3 hours

I wanted to take a break from my shading series and put my techniques to practice! I have been on an animal kick lately, and thought it would be really fun to draw a deer. Something about the contrast and detail in the horns, to the fun shading in the face and ears made me want to take on the challenge. I had a lot of fun with this drawing. The tones took a while to layer because there are SUCH dark tones in the eyes, nose/mouth, and horns. Almost all the detail was done with a .5 mm HB mechanical pencil & a kneaded eraser.

Thanks for reading! 😀
