My second cricket commission for this client is progressing nicely. There was no ball featured in the reference photograph, I wanted to put one in, and still do, but I think judging by his body language its probably too far away to be featured in this shot. I’m still sticking with the Nitram charcoal which I am getting used to. I’m also still using Generals charcoal pencils for detail. The two compliment each other really well. There is a lot of movement in this shot with the bat swishing up in the air and the twist of the body so I need to plan how to represent that within the drawing.
