Here’s a pic I did late last year from a class I’m taking at ArtTutor.com
Hopefully you can tell it’s a lion. It’s drawn in graphite which can get a particular unpleasant shine if you don’t take precautions. It shows up particularly when taken with flash photography as was the case here. The focus was meant to be on the face which I think I’ve achieved quite well. The body is less well drawn though I don’t think the rear is too bad.
