Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Dark Sun WIP - Finished

"Dark Sun" 17Ēx23Ē pencil & graphite WIP.
Iíve had this drawing chugging along for a while and thought Iíd show where it stands today. The next while will be spent getting it into focus.
I have posted one of the early pics, a photo of the paper with most of the background in, and 3 closeups of where. it sits this morning.
Comments & criticism welcome.

Re: Dark Sun WIP

There's a real sense of shape here, and your work on the fur is incredible. Must have taken you bloody ages to manage all those lines.

Re: Dark Sun WIP

Thanks Attalus. The polar bears are as fun as I'd hoped
The Weaver's face, well, it is what it is. I'm hoping for a calm, mature strength.

Hi L Skylar Brown. I draw apace. Thanks for the compliment

Thanks for the comments Crabbit-Minger. It's a process I wind up in the middle of, so drawing line over line or scumbling away is merely a moment for me. Some moments last longer than others, though

Thanks Virginia. I still don't see how I'll end up completing the hair. All in good tiime, I guess.

Thanks Dianna. There is a photo somewhere out there on te webz that I've modified in my drawing of the mother/cub pair. They are very beautiful and very sweet. I am trying for a warm, strong, maternal bear.

I took a pic of a corner that's seen some drawing.

Re: Dark Sun WIP

Thatís a lovely compliment Anthony Exactly what Iím trying to draw 👍

Iíve avoided the braids, which has been holding me back. Fear of the unknown, I guess. Because just how Iíll do them will unfold in the process. Scarey. Wish me luck.

Re: Dark Sun WIP

A happy time Iíve finished the move back into the studio. The black mold problem I discovered is repaired, the storage areas, shed, workshop and studio space all reassembled, and Iím working there again. That mold is probably why I was sick for years. Nasty stuff.

A happy-snap as it sits on the easel. The drawing is at the end-game stage now. Iím bringing it into focus, sharpening it up, adding depth, and generally trying to get the drawing to flow more smoothly. Always a challenging time when doing an extended drawing.

Re: Dark Sun WIP

Thanks Dianna I feel like the drawing begins to get an ebb and flow after a critical mass of time is put into it. Itís an intangible, but there is a critical point before the piece becomes too overworked that it seems really responsive to subtle adjustments.

ďDark SunĒ is complete. I included a couple of close-ups because that is sometimes fun to see. I hope you enjoy the end result
