As there seems to be quite a bit of artistic talent around here, I thought I would start a pencil sketch section .....

Conty I don't think you should add detail to the backgound ..who's the wise guy with the hawaiin sens of humour?...but as you mention the foot, putting a suggestion of the ground in and what type of ground it is will help show that foot raised. Shadow will give the figure bulk, and make it seem more solid.

agreed. i have decided what i am going to do to the rhino. I think im going to add a stoney dessert floor.  but today im working on Stephen Fry, im enjoying working between the 2, keeps things fresher and stops me from rushing and spoiling the drawing by getting bored with it. though i do suffer with a numb bum sat for so long LOL

I don't think this lad needs any advice about drawing, he seems to be doing OK on his own!    It  seems I'm not the only one who sees a slight  (surreal ?)  connection between the rhino and Stephen Fry .

He certainly is,and I hope our chats don't come over as me giving unwanted advice, just another artist sharing a different perspective.

I've got a keyboard like that....  Conor, the more you draw, the more insight you are conveying embedded in the image. That's the gift that raises you from a good draughtsman to an artist. Nice thing is that I can see this happening every time you give us a revised drawing. I think the pace of your development is increasing. Onward and Upwards!

cheers stanley, i worked again on the Rhino today, ive still got alot of work to do on his feet and legs and his body. but i have added a bit of shadow on the floor but i not sure yet if im going to add cracked floor or dusty stoney floor or leave just shadow. i think i will decide when the Rhino is finished. the shadow might be enough

The focus of the image as it stands concentrates attention where it should be, on the Rhino. Not sure if context would enhance this. This quality of forcing concentration on the primary object is one of the great advantages a drawing has over a photograph. This is why artist's bird illustrations are always more informative than photoraphs.

Cracker and makes me feel sorry for the Rhino. Mind you, if it was coming straight for me at a rate of knots I might have a diffent view!
