Black Leopard drawing progress

with this image you can see the real 'nuts and bolts' of the layering process required to get the lovely glossy blacks that i need for this cat.At this point i have layered with H grade pencils twice and further layers of HB and B have been applied and now the whiskers are starting to become clear.this will still need to be further layered with 2B and 3B and possibly even a smidgen of 5B to get the black that i want here.The eventual tone under the cats chin will be akin to that in the darkest parts of the ears.It is a very time consuming process and will take another full day in the studio to complete the cat's body.
