Here is my attempt at our family dog that we lovingly call fuzzy butt. Of course after her last grooming she isnt so fuzzy. Holly is part Pug and Part Cocker. She can be a handful, but also quite the lover.
I used Strathmore paper and just a couple of graphite pencils, 5H to lay it out and then HB, 2B and 5B for all of the shading.
I did like the way this turned out, I may at a later date go back and add in some charcoal for the darker areas, but we will see.
So here is the final next to the photo.
