Day 239 - ACEO Drawing Project for Charity by secrets-of-the-pen Day 239 - ACEO Drawing Project for Charity by secrets-of-the-pen
Day 239 of my 366 daily art project! A lot more are on the way! Please read all about my project and charity below and in my journal.

It's been a while since I've used white paper for charcoal. Kind makes you invert your thinking. :)

Special Thanks to *woxys for the stunning photograph! [link]

>>Created with charcoal and highlighted with chalk on 2.5x3.5 ACEO Bristol Vellum paper. About 3.5 hours.

:bulletred: See all my ACEO's in my gallery here: [link]





-----------------

♥ For every day of 2012, I will be drawing one ACEO sketch card. Every single one will be for sale - ALL proceeds to be donated to charity at the end of 2012.

My charity of choice is a local foundation called Alternatives to Violence, who is currently raising money to build a safehouse. This safehouse will provide a secure shelter to men, women and children who have recently escaped physical and sexual abuse.

With the safehouse, 312 individuals every year will receive crisis intervention, counseling, safety planning, advocacy and shelter.

Together, through art, we can help make a difference.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
If you love this piece and the safehouse project, you can see the card to purchase at Etsy for $11 + shipping: [link]

cool. seems like the fox is biting his own tail.
i think u missed he whiskers. :p

1]darker or different color background wud have been better
or
2]a bit of color like in the ref pic for for wud have been cool too,, but i know it was just charcoal thing.
#1or#2 wud hav given raised effect from that of the background and cool perspective.
Now, both fox and BG are like same,not much range difference but nice OOF effect.
:)

eyes are lively, as always.!!

I actually really liked the camouflage effect of the snow behind him. ^.^ And capturing lighter shades is always a challenge, so I'm glad you like it.
