Innocence by xxx-ellie Innocence by xxx-ellie
Check out my youtube channel for speed-drawings! (: [link]

This was a graphite drawing I completed that was exhibited in Marwell Zoo last autumn, as part of the 'MIWAS' annual exhibition. It was one of the best times of my life, being among the greatest wildlife artists in the world, and will definitely do it again this year!

"Innocence"
A3 graphite pencil drawing
SOLD at the exhibition.
* limited edition prints available *

Wow this is fantastic! I especially love the details you put into the nose and eyes. You remind me of another wildlife artist here on DA ~chandito. Hes got some tutorials and stuff, who knows? Maybe you guys could learn something from eachother. That would be really cool if you did a collaboration!
