    I love drawing African big game, they're a whole different world compared to my whitetails, and I like the change of pace once in a while.

    This is a concept sketch I did as an idea, later to be turned into a final drawing.

    Very nice Nina, I would like to see the reference picture though for the kudu. Something about the white blaze between the eyes looks a little off center, but it may appear that way in the reference photo. Outstanding job with the hair texture inside the ears and along the front of the neck. I'm impressed.

    Thanks everyone,
    Big Sky, I looked at the picture of the kudu mount in the Breakthrough magazine (this month's issue) and used pics of several other kudus found on the internet to draw the hair.

    Nina, I have been looking at your art work ever since you began posting it. There has been an obvious progression and improvement in detail and especially attention to shading and dramatic lighting. I think the black and white photography session made you more aware of light. Keep up the good work.
