First Pen and Ink Drawing!

This is the actual pen and ink drawing I
copied from the picture below.
Obviously, I didn't choose this picture for its beauty,
but with so many different lines and values,
I thought it made a great learning piece.
This is the original.  Mine has a much longer
neck, which was a mistake on my part.  But,
since it's a caricature, I actually liked
the exaggeration.
Next, I'm doing a charcoal drawing taken from a
photo of a real polar bear and her cub.  I can't draw animals,
especially real-life ones, which is probably why
my teacher's making me do it!
With so much going on since school started
it's nice to have a little something of my own.
Hope you're all taking some time for your
own creative outlets!
