Ok, so I've still not quite got the skills to get ahead of time but I'm not too far off.
Here are the two last (yipee!) Xmas commissions. All done before the dead line which is a great relief because it allows for quality corrections and "tweeking" as we like to call it.
One is a black cat: Dani, and the other a little white dog: Honey. Both drawings are pure graphite no charrcoal was used. Seem to be going through a charcoal-less phase...! They were difficult to do as the ref photos were not good and low on detail. Done it! Learned a few things and I'm pretty happy with the result.
Blogging off now for a few days; mabe week.
Speaky soon and a very Merry Xmas to you all!
