Elusive Spirit ....complete!



Here he is, 11 x 22 inches pencil on Stonehenge paper.
In the end I decided to keep it fairly simple (background/foreground) I think it brings out the big fella more, making a bigger impact.

I find my scanner makes the transition from grey to white on the surround a bit harsh. In real life it's a bit more of a gradual blend.

Update  The sharp eyed may notice that this is now a different picture as I've reworked the background a bit.
