I don't know if this is a real Hummel figurine or not, but I was bored, bored, bored today and grabbed this off my shelf to draw. I liked all of the curved edges on it and wanted to do something with depth today to keep up my skills with light and shadow. It is a charcoal drawing that I did on tinted paper. I put in my darkest values first to get my contrast going and identified my lightest areas, then chose the values from there. It was a good exercise and I felt a bit virtuous because I had accomplished SOMETHING on this icky, sticky, hot, muggy summer day.
