A4 Portrait Commission - Cobbler by 

This big softy was drawn onto medium surface cartridge paper using a mixture of 2b – 5b pencils. Both the paper, pencils and the use of a putty rubber helped to create the different textures within the drawing.

I love this one. Such a great character to draw… you just want to snuggle!
