I Love Llamas!
Don't have any of my own, but I find them fascinating and have had the opportunity to meet a few over the years and take lots of photos. They have tons of character and they're great subjects for drawings & paintings with wonderful expressions and textures. This is my latest ACEO mini drawing (2.5" x 3.5") - I used a card stock weight black scratchboard which is thinner and less "workable" than the professional scratchboard I use for my portrait and illustration work. It was good to use the thinner stuff, 'cause it kept me from over-working the piece and spending too much time on it.
The subject of the drawing is "Chewie" a handsome guy with a goofy side who lives in Penryn, CA.
