Charcoal Baboon

Here is a fairly quick charcoal drawing of a baboon! This image is taken from my own photograph which you can see below. 

Just a quick sketch to get me back into using traditional methods- I realise I have been doing a lot of digital work and neglecting good old traditional materials!

Black and white, brightness and contrast adjustment in Photoshop





Using the gradient tool, I gave the drawing a slight red tint for a more rustic effect.




I hope you like my traditional work! More of my other works can be found on the rest of this blog and also my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/CarlaTaylorIllustration



Thanks for taking the time to view my work!
