This is my first non North American animal. It took me a while, working with black is difficult. I used some charcoal with it, but mainly soft pastels. I used Canson pastel paper, which I don’t normally like, but I used the underside and it went much better.
This is a present for my Assisting Officer. She has been my rock through dealing with my unit. Everyone, no matter their rank, should have an Assisting Officer when going through any type of mental difficulties in the military. They are the calming voice of reason when you are trying to figure out things.
