New Red Squirrel drawing

Decided to stick with the domestic wildlife for a little while as ive got loads of ideas rattling around in my head for new pictures.the image ive posted is going to be a native Red Squirrel,a favourite subject of mine that ive visited on many occasions.The image from the drawing board is after a long day of blending and progressively darkening the background working at first with an 8b pencil very lightly over the surface and then worked over with a blending stump to produce the blurry effect.this is then worked over in turn by H,HB and B grade pencils to soften and darken further.Tomorrow i hope to make a start on the body of the squirrel,which i will strongly light to set it off nicely against the background and give it a little lift.
