tiger pencil drawing-work in progress


Slow progress i'm afraid at the moment due to a bad case of 'man flu' hampering my concentration.Ive made a start on the tiger by blocking in the darkest stripes on the cats head,these alone take a little while to do as each one is a combination of layers of graphite working from H grade right through to 5B to get the really deep blacks.ive completed one ear and the nose of the animal and have layed in the base coat of H grade pencil for the facial fur.The next stage will be to further layer the fur with HB and B grade pencils before working in the fur detail with B and 2B grades.

I've just stumbled across your blog Clive. What fantastic graphite work and thanks for explaining your technique with this picture. I usually shy away from backgrounds so found this very helpful.
Look forward to seeing progress
