A study in colored pencil after one of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel figures; 297 x 210 mm (A4):

Two somewhat random studies, both 18 x 24 cm on A4 paper.
Somewhat loosely based on a still from the film The Witch, a wonderfully creepy evocation of 17th century New England.Mostly HB pencil; I used a 2B here and there. For this leopard, I did the whole thing in HB:
Not using darker grade pencils is of course a somewhat questionable decision, but on the cheapish paper I use, I can't get much darker values anyway, and I have come to like the soft, almost silverpoint-like effect of HB.
