    Talking Yawn 2 (Updated 11-12-15)

    Hi everyone, I'm back! This is actually a reincarnation of an old drawing that I started and shared my work in progress here, but never finished. I had a little disaster with the file, and lost my work in progress. I was so crushed, as I had worked so hard on it!

    But, every cloud has a silver lining. I practiced a lot of new drawing techniques, and have, in my opinion, improved my skills drastically. So I restarted this drawing last night, and am delighted with how it is turning out so far. So, tell me what ya'll think!

    Off to sleep, and I will work on this some more this afternoon!

    Thanks for the kind comments! Here is a tiny update; I didn't get much time to work on this today. I'm just starting to block in the fur, and I might do some more touching up on the eye. But I think that it is coming along nicely and I'm having a lot of fun with it. It's slow going, though!

    Not sure if this is really enough progress to call an update, but I got some more work done on the forehead. It is a very time consuming process but so relaxing and fun. I hope to get a lot more done tomorrow, when I have more time.

    Got the other ear started, and started developing the cheek and bridge of the nose. I still haven't finished the forehead on the right side; I think that I will wait until I have drawn the other eye so that I can shade the hairs in that section more accurately.

    I know these aren't huge updates, but the work process is very long and intricate so getting this much done is a significant achievement for me. I go back and forth over the fur many times to achieve the look that I want, adding highlights, shadows, and working the strands of hair back into each other until the fur looks smooth and blended.

    Back to drawing!

    Thanks...my OCD tendencies get in the way a lot but sometimes they pay off...hehe. Though I probably could have finished this days ago if I wasn't so neurotic about detail!
