I have started a new “serious” drawing (meaning one I will spend many days on) and it’s going to be in the stippling technique, which is slow, but always nicely challenging. After having such a good time drawing the Boxer, I’ve chosen to draw a Dachshund. They are such funny little dogs, aren’t they? Not to mention as cute as can be.
There isn’t much to see yet, but that’s how they all start. Unfortunately, the photo quality is pretty poor, but it will give you an idea anyway.
I’m using Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens, drawing this on Strathmore 400 series Bristol Smooth paper. It is 8×10 inches in size.
Here is the graphite outline. I’ve darkened this quite a lot on my computer so the outline can actually be seen. I always start with graphite…ink is not very mistake-friendly!
Here is how it looks now, with the introduction of some ink. It’s a start. Funny, with the boxer, too, I started with the ear.
Thank you for looking. As usual, these WIP’s go on for quite a while. I hope you’ll join me in this dachshund journey. 🙂
