She's a 4 year old Yorkie. This is 11 x 14 graphite on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper. I'm using both mechanical pencils and Prismacolor Torquoise Drawing Pencils with a 4H, 2H, H, 2B, 4B, and 5B. I'm blending using a cotton swab. For the highlights, I'm using a Tuff Stuff Eraser Stick which I cut at an angle to get a nice sharp edge which I use to "draw" the highlighted strands of hair.
