Ostrich - WIP03

Hello All,

Here's another update on the Ostrich.  I'm probably going to have to stop working on this piece for a while to create my Silent Auction donation to CPSA for the Convention.  I will do a work in progress on the silent auction piece as well, so keep checking back.  I had to order the support I plan on using for the silent auction piece so I will continue on this until I get that order.

As for the Ostrich.... I'm continuing to create this piece using predominantly Prismacolor pencils along with some Derwent Colorsoft Pencils.  I am also continuing to use my Icarus heated board to lay down the pencils.  I am actually drawing while on the heated section on the board and then blending the pencil using a stomp.  I'm really enjoying using this process, it gives you a feeling of painting rather than drawing.

The image I posted is only the upper half of the piece.  The piece is actually 16" x 16" square and I haven't started working on the lower half yet.

If you have any questions or comments let me know, in the mean time..... Keep Scribbling!



  1. Looking good Gems! This one always makes me laugh. What support did you order for your silent auction donation?

  2. Thanks TJ!! I ordered pastel board. I thought I would play with that.
