Bear Pope WIP early stages



early stages of my new drawing. The face is probably 3/4 completed, I just need to push the contrast in highlights and shadows to round out the form a bit more. Then start on the hat and robes. Then the Birch forest background.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

The Nest... a new visual from an old concept



I have attempted to do a version of this imagery years ago with little to no success. I believe I have grown enough as an artist to attempt it again. I will be posting work in progress shots periodically as I progress through this work.  Thanks for stopping by.
