Thought you’d like to see my progress on the composition I’m currently working on. I’m having lots of fun with the fur.

ballantines collie dog pencil
Wooooooow!! Holy ….um…Moses..nice work!
How do you get the fine highlight lines?
Well I suppose I do them them the old fashioned way, decide where they are going to be, then draw their outlines in a hard pencil (H7) worked up strengthening their shape with different strength pencil leads (F, B, B2) and then fill in the flowing in the right direction the fur should be going. Although slow and meticulous, it seems to work for me judging by the results I’m getting, read more here:WIP 1 – LilyWIP 2 – Gypsy
Tank you Tony, most appreciated.
Hi Jan, this is superb, I really like what you are doing. The dog are photo realistic but I can still see its a drawing, a work of art, skill and design, created with confidence, but that must be your previous life coming through. :))
Thank you Lynn, for still being able to see through the photorealism and still see my art underneath, most folk miss that at first glance, thinking it’s a photo, but I try (probably on purpose) to bring out the earthyness of a sketch back through, but your absolutely right in pointing out that it is probably my previous existence that keeps slipping through!
