Finally, I can call this boxer finished. It was a long journey…I’ve been working on this fellow since October, so it definitely felt good to sign it and spray it with fixative. There’s such a simple joy in cutting the drawing from the tablet of paper and framing it or putting it safely into my portfolio. Whew, I can relax! The boxer is all done now. 🙂
I pushed the darks throughout the drawing, finished up his chain collar, and added the whiskers. The whiskers were really fun, but a bit scary…no room for mistakes out there on the white of the paper! And then, finally, I erased all of the faint lines of graphite that I used for the original sketch. This dog is now 100% ink. 🙂
