I decided to animate a sketch I’d made of Lord Frederic Leighton’s Athlete Struggling with a Python, to see if I could give an idea of the way a sketch progresses from broad motions to finer outlines and finally, in this case, cross-hatched shading.

I sketched the bronze sculpture at London’s V&A Museum, though it has since been moved to the Tate Britain.
