I’ve been meaning to draw this for a while. I found him/her during our first walk up onto the moors. As I’m always on the lookout for useful objects to draw, I wrapped it in a bag and brought it home for a good wash. I think it’s a fox, but it could be a dog.
Ever since I’ve been following Ryan’s beautiful drawings, I’ve been struck by the strange beauty of bones and skulls – the underlying structures of all creatures. I have to say though, they are terrifically fiddly to draw. It’s very good practice for getting tonal values though, as you really have to look for them to get the shape.
