'K' is for Kudu

One of the most beautiful of the African antelopes would have to be the kudu, so it was an easy choice to pick a bull kudu (greater) for my 'k' piece this week. I took this great reference photo in Ruaha and was overjoyed when this handsome creature turned and looked at me, allowing me to capture his full splendor. I have not done him justice as this is just a quick sketch taking about 2 hours but I did enjoy forming the shape of his horns and capturing the strength of his body with my pencil. I wonder what our other artists will choose as their subjects for 'k' this week?
