quick update-Tiger progress


The Tiger is progressing nicely now with lots of layers of tone layed down on the front leg and extensive fur detailing added.Its a slow process very much akin to building up an oil or acrylic painting and so once the underlying tones are correct then layers of fur texture are added on top,which ,in turn,can be overlayed with more graphite in areas,just like glazing with oils.Once the second limb is completed it will throw the nearer limb forward nicely and look a good deal less flat.

Dear Clive,
Could you please let me know how you did get those facial white hairs on the leg? Face region is incomplete, but how did you get the whitish outline of hairs of face on the leg?

please let me know.

indentation is the answer mark,any sharp object will do,just indent the paper and then graphite wont get into the resulting groove
