Pepper by seasonaldragon1 Pepper by seasonaldragon1
This is my dog, Pepper. She's a Parson's Jack Russell, and is quite insane.

The drawing is for a University project, we had to draw one animal, one human, one natural object and one man made object. This is for the animal one, obviously P: hehe

The project aim is to condense the image by drawing it over and over again, getting rid of superfluous information until you get to the 'essence' of the thing you have drawn, and conveying that in a few concise lines or shapes.
This image is my starting point - the one with the most detail.

It is a finished picture, it just has an awful composition because the only way to keep Pepper still for long enough is by stroking her - the blank space is where my hand was.
Obviously I also had to take photos to get her fur right because this picture took me forever x_____x

Thank you, Mirry-mir :3

I used my Faber Castel Polychromos colouring pencils for the whole picture.
The fur is individual pencil strokes, I changed colours very often so the pencil strokes were distinguishable from each other.

I was really careful to get the direction of the fur just right too, there are lots of odd twirly bits and changes of direction that appear in fur in real life, I think getting that right really adds to the realism of a piece :3

I hope that answers your question ^-^
