    Ape eyes

    This is a pencil drawing using three layers one for brown, black and white pencil lines. The reference photo was uploaded and I drew from that, and I used an A4 size canvas. The background paper is using cardboard_tile150 and the setting for the pencil is Soft Tip.

    I like that you saved your highlights for the eyes. It draws the eye to the eyes as it were

    Very nice.

    I am always chilled when I come in eye sight of an animal, that is, our eyes truly meet and there is nothing else. So much empathy is exchanged. At times there can be encounters with dogs and horses.

    But it is the eyes of our closest relatives (6-7 million years removed) that are most haunting. And you caught that feeling for me.

    looks great all matted!

    you are right though... white is the absence of any color in lithographic printing so your paper color would show through and ink jet printers are basically a form of lithographic printing with their cyan magenta yellow and black inks. No color equals no ink.
