Step 6: I've decided to add a mini twist to the perfect pose. Saliva. I feel this will give the portrait that little extra, an unexpected difference.
Close up of the saliva in progress..not full sloppy drool but a decent quantity and annoyingly there.
Step 8: Moving on to the ears, will tweak nose, muzzle and saliva later!
Step 9: More work on ear, darkened all the values, tweaked a little here and there. Added more depth by working on the mid tones. Added detail with a very sharp 2B.
Try as I may, my scanner will just not pick up the very fine detailed pencil work.
One thing I did forget to do:time myself...the first question I am usually asked. Not to worry! I'll just have to say it's all in a weeks work!
Thanks for following, sketch day tomorrow...I'll keep you posted.
Cheerio and have a great Friday Night.
