Socrates, originally uploaded by Here Be Dragons.

Since my 365 photo today is of snakes, I thought it would be a good time to post this pencil sketch I did a few weeks ago, too. This is Socrates, a gopher snake which my mother kept as a pet for many years. This sketch was done from a photo; unfortunately, Socrates died a few years ago.

Even when I'm planning to do my final piece of artwork in a different medium, I almost always start out with a pencil sketch. I'm starting to notice, though, that I often like my pencil sketches at least as well as whatever I do next. Maybe I should just stick with pencil? :D
