This was set as a practise piece. It has been well received so I have made it available for sale on Daily Paintworks you can see it here I used this piece to help to practise drawing long fur. Long fur is completely different from short hair – or so I thought. It is actually exactly the same. I initially tried to draw each clump of fur but that resulted in lots of bare patches which did not look right. So I restarted and ending up treating it like everything else I draw, I looked for the darkest tones and worked through to the lightest. I then added fur detail at the end. Much better and a good exercise.
