Longhorn again.

05 Jul

He’s coming along, dot-by-dot.  I’d hoped to have this done in time to enter him in the state fair, but unfortunately, it wasn’t to be.  I am entering several other drawings, so it isn’t a big loss.

Anyway, he’s coming along.  I’ve been pushing the darks in the fur of his body.  I’ve started using a Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pen (the Fine size, which is the largest size so far for this drawing) to make more hefty marks in the darker areas of the fur.  I’ve also taken to using a sort of scribbling method to darken things further and more quickly in those dark patches of thick fur.  It’s time to make those darks blacker. 🙂

Thank you for looking.

    Hi Jenna
    Wow, you have done a lot of posts since I was here last! I think that this longhorn is just so neat and one of your best so far! The fireworks video was neat too….just too bad we couldn’t actually go to see them this year:( Maybe next time…

    Hi Mom, thank you so much for checking in and leaving a comment. 🙂

    I missed the fireworks this year, too. It couldn’t be helped, though. Let’s hope for next year.

    Thanks again!
