Black Leopard drawing update

Still working on the body of the cat with more graphite layered in today.The darkest areas of the leopard are under the chin where i have used 2B,3B and 5B pencil to work up the tone to a lovely glossy black.The body is now starting to take shape and will gradually improve over the next day or two.I felt it important to start with the cat's body which is unusual for me because it was the darkest part of the drawing and helps in setting the appropriate tones for the cat's face.
