Some people have asked me about how I draw fur, so with the piece I’m currently working on I’m going to make a tutorial of sorts with it.

Finished the Ocicat coloured pencil drawing today.

I’m liking the coloursoft pencils a lot for pet portrait work. I’m considering using them for my other work too, though I’ve never been much of a fan of them.

I’ve been trying out Derwent Coloursoft pencils for this portrait. Preferring them so far over my usual Inktense pencils for pet portrait work.

My latest completed pet portrait is of Siberian Husky, Chip. Drawn in graphite pencil on hot press watercolour paper.

I got a lot of sketches and gesture drawings of this particular dog, which I’ll probably upload at some point. I’m considering either making a separate gallery for sketches, or dotting the images around the site.
