This fellow may possibly be the most difficult dog I’ve drawn (or attempted to draw) to date. That’s right – even harder than the fluffies! He’s got so much character crammed into all of those wrinkles and crinkly eyes … it defies being put on paper. After much starting and stopping and erasing (and, yes, even cursing) – this is what I have to show for today. My reasons for sticking with it are twofold: 1) I love the challenge – I love his face, and its difficulty makes me more determined to get it done and 2) this is a gift for a special foster family, from the winner of a challenge over at Blockhead Craftwerks! I think I have as much as I will done with pencil, so tomorrow will bring the ink, and we’ll see what develops!
