I guess I am a little late to be wishing you all a Happy New Year! I’ve had a very busy Christmas/New Year season, and have not had much time for art, so my blog has been quiet.
But I’m back now with an update on Shelby. I took a bit of a break from this drawing over Christmas, but now, I am back on track and working at it again. Just yesterday, I finally drew the second eye, and now that Shelby has both ears and both eyes, I do feel that she looks more balanced. Her black “mask” marking is a bit slower to draw because it’s so black, and takes a lot of dots to get dark enough. I don’t mind that a bit, though. I’ve also began working some contrast into the whites on her face, which are a bit freckled and smoke-colored in the photos I have of her. Today, I’ve started on her mouth, but I haven’t gotten far enough to warrant another updated image. So stay tuned. More updates are on the way!
Thank you for looking.
