Finally, I seem to have broken free of my slump, and am now thoroughly enjoying a new drawing. This time, it’s a boxer, which is pretty much my dream dog. Since I can’t currently own one, I’ll just have to draw and dream. 🙂
This is 8×10 inches on Strathmore 400 Series Bristol Smooth paper. I’ve got the graphite outline, and am starting with the ink. For ink, I’m using Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens and Staedtler Pigment Liner Sketch Pens. I like the 0.1 mm size for the fine details.
This one is going rather quickly for now. I suppose it just feels great to draw again, so I can’t stay away.
Hope you like it so far. Please excuse the poor photos…it’s been cloudy and dark out, so I’ve had to use the flash…it doesn’t work very well, but you get the idea.
I started with the ear. It looked like the most difficult part, so I wanted to get it done first.
The neck area.
This is what he looks like as of now. I hope to draw some more this afternoon. It’s chilly and rainy…the perfect day for drawing!
Thanks for looking.
