The Final Demonstration

I went over the softer shapes in both white and black pencils to make the fur more furry. Crisp edges and bright eyes. Voila!

WOW! How long does it take you to do a whole work like this?

Thanks for your question.
I have a general three hour rule. Most of the work I do is done in open studios with breaks and somehow, my attention span falls apart after three hours. These were done in basically two one hour demos with about an hour at home. It is small: 9x12". Actually it is a great way to work from life. It give a lot of lee-way for correcting. When the basic tones are in, the light fixative commits you. After that it is just details.
