Cool Mud Bath

Man, it is H * O * T outside! One thing this weather is good for is sketching inside. This little piggy image caught my attention sitting there on my computer screen this hot afternoon and I just started drawing it. I drew it upside-down and it really was a cinch. When I had the overall shapes down, which was accomplished holding my pencil like a wand, I turned the drawing and the photo right side-up and added a few details holding my pencil as I would to write. This really is a super easy one to draw. Why not give it a try? Strengthen your skills with a simple step by step tutorial on this pencil and wash technique here.
