This was one of the first pencil drawings I’ve done that wasn’t shaded with a blending stick. (I did this one before ‘Majesty.’) I’m really fond of it, even though it is rather simple. It had been a long time since I’d done a picture of a howling wolf, and if you were to go through my old sketchbooks and notebooks you would inevitably find dozens of them, but they are all very old and – honestly – not very good. I was happy to have actually done one worth showing.
Pencil on 8.5×11 sketchbook paper. Original Available.
