This last drawing was made using pencil. I seldom draw using pencils as ink is my preferred medium. Having done this, I can see that I am lacking in skill where shading and tones are concerned. Nevertheless I enjoyed this exercise as I had the advantage of correcting the drawing till I am satisfied. Ink drawings are less forgiving and I have to be very careful there.
Reference for Plain Tiger Butterfly.
