Thank you faiza! I'm glad I am inspiring someone. :) I hope you draw something you like soon.

Well, haven't gotten any farther along with the Yorkies, but I plan to work on it some today so we'll see how it goes...

Alrighty. Well, I am restarting the one of the Yorkies. I'm not very happy with it and I think that I can do better. I also found a little tutorial on YouTube on drawing dog fur that will hopefully help.

I learned from someone on YouTube that the 0.5 mechanical pencil is better to use for drawing as it is thinner, making it easier to get small details right the first time. I tried it and I LOVE IT. It is surprising how much it makes it easier to do minute details.

Here is an eye I did for practice today-- working on small details:

I have also started a portrait of two adults. I'll be going back and forth from this portrait to the dogs. And after these I have another drawing to do of a child that someone wants me to do!

I don't even want to comment anymore, I feel like I have nothing more original then 'wow'. That eye is amazing, I find it so hard to add in those types of details.

Great job as always!

HCT, you are AMAZING!

I wish I had half your talent (I like drawing too, but I'm no good, nothing like you)

Thank y'all so much for your comments!

Here is a little progress on the portrait of a couple I'm doing for them.

I still haven't restarted the one of the Yorkies yet though... ugh
