Hare drawing progress

The background is now complete,nice and simple in keeping with the drawing as a whole,much overlayering with B grade pencils was required to get to this tone,but there is still scope to darken further should it be required for the final balance of the piece.
The head of the hare is more or less complete except for a little tinkering later on.The second ear has had the base coat of H grade pencil applied and i am just building up the darker areas of the ear with a second layer of HB grade pencil.i used all grades from H to 3B on the complete ear to acheive that depth of tone,in stark contrast to the watercolour paper i used for my owl drawing this paper is very smooth and so will take much softer grades of pencil to build up tone.
