Black Labrador portrait

At the moment i'm still trying to work out what i want to do next image-wise but in the meantime ive had the rough sketch for this black labrador lying around for a couple of weeks now and so i'll crack on with this whilst i ruminate over the next project.
In the first photo you can see the building blocks of all my images.the rough outline has been transferred onto the paper and two layers of H grade pencil layed in with some areas a little darker to show where i want some bold darks.
In the second photo ive overlayed more layers of graphite consisting of HB,B and 2B and worked the top of the head area up to near completion.ive also started building tone on the muzzle and indented the whiskers ready for darker graphite to be overlayed.
