Finally, the boxer is making a comeback. Over Christmas and the New Year, I had to put my art supplies away to be sure that my little nephews and niece didn’t get into them. Now my art stuff is sprawled around the living room again, and so I can work on this. I’ve worked on this boxer for a couple of sittings and am finally nearing the finish. After this is done, I am hoping to draw my Oliver in ink. But that’s beside the point at the moment. About the boxer…he is close to done…So close I’ve worked in him since this latest update, so now the chain collar is nearly finished (that metal collar was nerve-wracking to draw, by the way!). I’ve also put in a few more whiskers, so I’ll post what I hope will be the finish very soon. 🙂
Here are some close-ups to show the textures. For Christmas, I got a wonderful tripod for my camera, and so I can take better, clearer photos of my artwork now.
He has kind of an old man chin, with all the whiskers and the stubble. It was a lot of fun to try to get these textures down. Although, working around those white whiskers in a negative drawing style tested my patience at times.
Thank you for looking! 🙂
