"...our contemplated base on the shore of McMurdo Sound at the foot of the volcano Erebus..."

Today I begin a most ambitious project. I am currently re-reading "At the Mountains of Madness" written by H. P. Lovecraft, and have decided to illustrate some of the passages from the book. This project should give ample practice in two studies I have much need to master; Light and Shadow and Line Quality. This image is taken from a photograph. I used two small Faber-Castell pens over a pencil sketch, but soon I hope to use crow quills, just like the Masters of Old. Huzzah!
