Storm portrait in progress 5
The shadowed side of Storm’s muzzle shows how I put in the strokes of fur on the grey paper.
Zoom in if you are on a small screen. If you can view this large enough to see the pencil strokes, you'll see how the grey of the paper creates the "shadows" of the hairs that make each hair appear separate from the others.
This is how Storm’s portrait looked when I finished for the day in the studio.
Tomorrow I’ll do her tongue. That is always fun, when I’ve been working in muted greys, to do something with bright color.
