Labrador commission progress

With the background toning finished for the moment ive now made a start on Amber the labrador.Because she's quite pale in colouration i wanted to set up my tonal values for the piece by drawing the darkest areas first,in this instance Amber's nose and muzzle.Doing a couple of dark areas first makes it easier to judge the tones on her coat and therefore i can approach this element with confidence knowing exactly which grades of pencil will suffice.under normal circumstances progress would be relatively rapid from this point in the drawing but as its almost christmas with all that that entails the drawing will be a little stop/start on occasion.

This piece is progressing so well!
I do love seeing your drawings progress from a background to the final piece.
I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year.
Can't wait to see all your beautiful drawings that will come our way next year.
