Here is a very old image I did back when I worked at Marvel. Marie Javins was an editor at the Big M at the time and had a bovine themed collection of sketches including some incredible ones by all sorts of names in the industry.
I, of course, had to add to her collection and came up with this bull. It was done with marker and whiteout...a lot of whiteout. I would put down blacks with ink, go back over it with white then add black again and then with white, creating a very 3-D and textured look. May have been because it was in fact, 3-D. You could run your fingers over the image and feel and the ink and whiteout caked on all over the piece.
I liked the etched look it gave me and the illusion of light streaming through the tree branches. Go to her website and click on the names on the left to see all sorts of other cow-themed sketches. It's worth the trip.
