Sunday, Apr. 29th 2012 6:08 PM

I’ve set up a page for tutorials, with the first being how I draw fur using graphite. Other tutorials will be added to the page in the coming weeks. If anyone has anything in particular they would like to see, let me know.

Cat Portrait – Completed

Thursday, Apr. 26th 2012 2:48 PM

Coloured pencil cat.

I didn’t work this one as much as I usually do, using fewer layers of coloured pencil, preferring to let the tone of the paper show through more.

A cat I started work on today:

I want to keep this one fairly simple, and not add as much detail as I usually do, instead utilising the tone of the paper for shading. Whether or not I actually manage to restrain myself, we shall see.

A pastel portrait of a pair of Airedale Terriers I’m working on.

I’m particularly enjoying drawing this portrait given how well pastels lend themselves to the texture of the dog’s fur.

Quick update.

Friday, Apr. 13th 2012 10:53 AM

I’m working away from home, without my camera, so no photo updates for now, but I have a couple of new portraits waiting to be added in the coming week. The graphite fur tutorial will also be going up, and I’ve begun work on others for pastels and coloured pencils.
