He's beginning to take shape . . .
Today I darkened down the darker areas of fur with black conte pastel. The mouth I gave a layer of pale blue covered with two different pinks; I'll come back to this at the end. The eyes: I used three different browns; again, I'll continue with the fur then go back and make a few more changes to them to sharpen the definition. For some reason I find noses incredibly difficult! It doesn't make sense, I know, because I find eyes and mouth ok, but I'm building the nose very slowly as velour paper isn't very forgiving with mistakes!
