Not sure exactly why but I decided to try my hand at drawing a Buffalo Head .... so I found a photograph and began day 37 .... as I have said before, drawing animals is not my strong suit. When I was done, I looked at the sketch and thought ... "Wow, I have just sketched a Werewolf with horns!" ....
Day 37 - First attempt at sketching a buffalo head ...
On Day 38 I found a different photo of a buffalo, this one had a great more details and I could see it a lot more clearly; and decided to attempt another version, but this time I grabbed a sheet of notebook paper and did a pencil pre-sketch to get the feel of the subject, the shadowing, and the shape of the head. Well, this one at least looks like a buffalo and not a werewolf ... maybe the third time will be a charm????
Day 38 ink sketch version of the buffalo head ... I think I put in about 4 hours on this sketch because I really wanted it to turn out good, so I went much slower and paid a lot more attention to detail. I think this version turned out much better!
Moral of the story? Just keep on trying!
