Isn't he gorgeous? I love the way you have done the fur like negative drawing, Diana. a difficult viewpoint to capture I would say but you have managed it wonderfully.

I couldn't help but smile when I saw this, like Carole says, he's gorgeous.

I also think he's gorgeous, Diana, and full of character.

You've done a wonderful job Diana despite the set backs of poor references. You've added lots of texture and tones to describe all the changes in fur direction etc.

Carole, Val, Jenny and Fiona , thank you for your support. It&#39;s lovely to get positive feedback from z difficult project. <br />Diana

Graphite commission. Probably the hardest drawing I have ever taken on. The reference photos were all without highlights and s blob of black fur with hidden eyes. He has a lot of appeal though and despite having weaker areas Im OK with the outcome.
