Dore Copy

Finishing university left me at a real loose end for a little while. Over the summer I intend to develop my basic drawing skills particularly in anatomy and classical realism. This image is the first I have produced since finishing uni and helping me get back into the swing of things. It is a graphite copy of a Gustave Dore engraving. I particularly like Dore engravings, not only for the imagination and creativity in them but also in that as engravings they are forced to leave smaller details and gradual tonal shifts out making for an interesting challenge in producing copies.
