|bella in progress|
i've started blending the graphite now on bella using a small tortillon, along with getting richer darks down on the paper and figuring out all the textures in a shepherds coat. once i finish that, then it's just starting back at the top again and firming up all the details. i'll then work on creating a light toned background to pick up the white fur around her ears!
