Perch by GloriaDei Perch by GloriaDei
Project complete! Here is the panda in a tree, finished just in time to be my January artwork.

Many thanks to :iconsophiefzy: for the stock photo here: [link] which I used as reference for this drawing.

F - 8B graphite on Canson drawing paper.

Awesome!!! +1 for you. Great detail and texture. Contrast is good and background is even a bit blurry, I like that.

And they make interesting tonal art. There's a lot of gray in the white fur, and a lot of bright sheen in the black fur.

Thanks--I liked how unusual the image was. Mostly pandas are photographed on the ground, eating bamboo or something like that.

My pleasure. And they are actually very skilful climbers... especially when they are young. ^__^

The blurring and softening of the background is outstanding technique, making the foreground be what it is - AMAZING! Very hard to find fault here, the composition and perception has been laid out well, allowing the eye to go deeper into the work, from the sharpest to the softness.

You would think that a panda as detailed and eye catching as this one would steal the picture but I can't keep looking at the background. The proportions, the textures, the shading... just all looks so real.

- AMAZING job :D
