Wanted to take a picture of the blank form. Almost forgot as I started on the tail a little before I took the picture.
I started with the tail. The bottom is just line work and the tail uses the tangle Shattuck
Next I moved up to the ears and horn. I used Fassett for he horns and some shading for the ears.
This was the hardest section so far. Most is just shading and making it as dark as I could. Had to go over it a lot. The nose was not too hard to do. The real problem was with the eyes. I usually do not try to pencil in something but I had to with the eyes. Tried a couple of things before I finally settled on this style. I looked at a lot of pictures and tried a couple of different things. This is the only thing that looked half way decent. Made me realize why I do not like doing realistic art. The collar is probably a little too high on the bottom but since I burned it, it has to stay. Maybe will add something to it.
Will probably work on the feet next. Have an idea of what I want to do on this. Then will work on the body. Will probably be a lot of negative space. Not sure how often I will post the progress on this. May just do a series to the end.
Thanks for visiting. As always, comments are welcomed, encouraged, and appreciated.
