new drawing progress


Eventually this will be a black leopard but for the moment at least it resembles a panda!.Ive completed the ears which were just about the darkest area on the cat and so useful tonally wise to get them complete as soon as possible so that i can judge the tonal range over the rest of the image a little easier.As the cat is so dark the light whiskers will have to be in place before i start to add tone on the face and so ive added a layer of H grade graphite which will be the whisker tone and then indented the whiskers on top.

This looks like it is going to be a striking piece of work.
