He loves to "hide" or to find himself a cave...earlier only his nose and toes were sticking out, but when I came back with my art supplies, this is what I found!
I sketched it quickly first with a Burnt Ochre colored pencil, since he's so mobile--I wanted to get the pose down firs, then figured I could add the washes if he moved.
Which he did! I was still getting the tail end when I finished, but not the bottoms of his feet, so tweaked them from memory...
I loved the way he just disappeared in shadow...
