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!
