Here's an update on my portrait of Bella. I'm continuing on by drawing tiny tiny lines close together for the fur/hair. For the lighter hair, I'm using 4H, 2H, and H leads and for the darker hair in shadow, I'm using HB, B, and 2B leads. I'm drawing each individual hair focusing on the light and darks. I also have one ear done. I'm going to be working on Bella all weekend long so hopefully I can at least get her face finished by Sunday evening. I'll post an update soon!

For the hair, so far I'm using 4H, 2H, and H for the light hair and 2B for the darker hair. In drawing each individual hair using tiny strokes. No blending tools. More to come soon!

I'm starting a new dog portrait. Here is "Bella", she's going to be 11 x 14 on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper. I created my line drawing using a Pentel P205 mechanical pencil with a 2B lead. I have mapped out where I want light and shadow. More to come soon!
