I admire your talent. Just recently I've started trying my hand at painting animals, mainly a cat and dog of friends of mine. Not too bad, but I've got a really long way to go. If you'd like to see my two attempts, go to: buffyeyes.blogspot.com

That's some great work there man.
What kind of canvas/paper and pencils/graphites do you use? (like oil painting but with pencils - ? soft graphites, almost like pastels?)

thanks very much all.
paper is arches hot pressed watercolour paper which has been stretched.pencils are derwent graphics grades H thru to 5B.
the similarity with oils is in the layering technique used as opposed to the nature of the materials.i used to oil paint using glazing techniques and i just applied the techniques to graphite art

The details are great. I love the depth of field and the harsh shadows you gave the dog. Great work.
