Pen and pencil drawing based on 'An Athlete Wrestling with a Python' sculpture by Frederic, Lord Leighton1877. I like the power and force behind this piece. The original was inspired from the sculpture 'The Laocoön' which shows three men being crushed by serpents. I used a blue uniball pen compared to black to create a cold scene with interesting tones. The black pen gave it the depth it required. I liked experimenting with the crosshatch technique but may have looked just as good or better in charcoal and pencil.
