Eye is much better, Sniz. It's looking more glassy. Neck lines could be blended more into the neck?

Thanks Yeah they are more blended on the real thing, the camera has made them look real sharp!

This is one of the commissions I have at the moment. I haven't started it yet because I don't know how to! So much hair! I'm scared

Does anyone have any tips they can give me for doing this one?

You won't be able to just shade this little guy, you're going to have to draw hairs. Start with the shadows to build up a general idea of hair direction, then subtly add some of the lighter hairs with a very sharp pencil. I would really focus on the eyes, get the eyes and the nose absolutely perfect, and you will give yourself some leeway to be a little less precise with the fur surrounding the face.

Looking at the photo now, he has a lot of character - I think he'll actually be quite fun to draw, tricky, but worthwhile!

I just don't know where to start, this one is scaring me Don't suppose you could knock up a quick sketch or something? Just to give me an idea? I really want to do it well but I don't think I'll be able to do the photo justice.
