4 media monkey

The assignment for this was to draw a monkey using only 4 preselected different media. I chose a pink sharpie, a green fine point sharpie, a pencil, and crimson watercolor applied with one of those chinese bamboo brushes. I hated drawing my monkey with a sharpie to start with. As you can see by the random line going through the middle of his head and that mess on his hand, I clearly needed something I could erase while I was feeling out my proportions. but I did enjoy the process of mixing the different drawing media. I like working in a lot of different media- but I rarely mix them together so this was fun.
