I did this study yesterday; conte on newsprint as usual. I have to admit I was disappointed by my handling of the armpit of the raised arm, but when I was finished, it reminded me of Don Quixote.
Ever since reading Cervantes' work, I've wanted to do a series on the story.
Along with work on armpits, I need to make him older and scrawnier. Perhaps I'll just call this young Quixote.

Studies of a dead Junko. Conte pencil. 8.5 x 10 in
Unfortunately I have a cat who is a hunter. I guess that is to be expected given he was a stray, but then all cats are, and therefore more the reason to be kept inside. He hates it and when he can escapes only to bring a gift of carrion back to me. Over the years it's been birds, chipmunks and mice, and each time I try to honour the victim with a drawing. I know this is hardly an excuse for the killing, but it is the least I can do.
