For this I had a reference photo. The reference photo showed a much bigger part of the crocodile, but due to the size of my paper I had to crop it and focused on the head and neck of the animal.
In the middle of my creative process I had the strong feeling that nothing worked, and wanted to throw the drawing in the bin. However I told myself that I could do that in the end, that it was a piece of practice anyway and kept on working on it. There are some lines on the head of the animal which should not be there, but I like the region around its eye, and I think it has got some character.
The colouring process was a challenge, too: which colours does a crocodile really have? I went for something grey-greenish, and some light brown for its belly. It was a challenge .- and it was fun!
