I chose a new challenge for each exchange.  This time it was to attempt more of a loose, free style.  I took some anatomical liberties with the subject to facilitate this goal.  This is also the first bokashi I've done for an exchange.
My original concept didn't include a keyblock, but color test drawings looked better with it, so I carved one anyway.  I liked how it printed, also.  The image doesn't pop out as well without the keyblock.
