Silver Tiger Engraving

tiger.silver.web

This is a scratchboard engraving drawing on silver paper.  I have gone back and made some changes on the Cintiq.  I sure am having fun on the cintiq  and there are so many possibilities. It’s exciting to realize I am in my infancy here with this drawing tool..  What great things to look forward to.

Portrait of a zebra in graphite, love grey

\My love for drawing animals continues.  This is a simple but sophisticated graphite drawing of a zebra done on ecru paper to give it a soft tone.  As his stripes leave him, they meander into a background that engulfs his background and camouflages his beautiful face.

Here he is on products from my online store.

Zebra in graphite

This zebra is one of many I have drawn.  I love their patterns.  This one is just simple woodless graphite pencil on watercolor paper.  His stripes and the foliage in his surroundings just blend together to create another dimension in drawing.

The pencil is Pentalic Woodless Pencil by M.Grumbacher (w.Germany) and it’s a 6B.  I  love it.  If you have not drawn with this pencil, you are missing out on a great experience.  I have had my collection of these pencils for 30+ years so I don’t know if they still make them.

I loaded this artwork onto a new FB art group.  It was an instant hit and it just goes to show you that you never know who is watching you on social media.
