The early stages can be a little slow in ink, but I have been picking away at this drawing. Now that I have a relatively solid mass of dots on the ear, I can move on toward the rest of the dog. Being left-handed, I realize too late that I should have started with the snout so I don’t rub my hand into the ink, but one must move forward regardless.
Part of what inspired me to draw this dachshund was the impish expression of the dog in the reference photo I’m using. I hope to capture that look as I go.
Here’s a closeup.
Thank you for looking.
