On a related note, here's a teen drawing of mine that I found the other day, a golden eagle head study from 1993 (I was pretty intrigued by the concept of crosshatching then).

  1. I absolutely love your work and the museum drawings are my definite favourite!
    What pencil do you use to achieve such dark lines? I've considered using a conté pencil but worry about smudging while drawing.

    1. Thank you Mel! I'm using a 5B grade pencil.. I also dial up the contrast in my scans quite a bit, so the lines tend to look darker than they really are.

    2. Ah great! Thanks for the response. I'll give the 5B a shot!
