Sumatran Tiger drawing update

this past week has been so busy with art-related business that i havn't had as much time to devote to my tiger drawing as i would have wished.essentially ive managed to complete both ears now,which always comes as a relief to me as i find cat's ears such a tough proposition in graphite that i like to approach them fairly early on in the developement of a piece.i am now working up the facial stripes of the cat in my usual manner of layer upon layer of graphite slowly building up the dark tones whilst retaining the details.once the stripes are all in place work will then continue a pace to define the rest of the fur.

Glad to see it's not just me who finds ears 'challenging' Clive. Coming along nicely.

Looking great, Clive. Hope you get more time to work on him.

As I'm browsing your blog, I'm saying to myself that there's no way I could do that. I dabble in a bit of drawing but no way I'm close to what you're doing. They all look great!
