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.

This is 11 x 14 graphite on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper. I used 0.5mm Pentel P205 mechanical pencils with 4H, 2H, H, B, and 2B leads. I used a blended circulism technique using a medium tortillion, cotton swabs, soft tissue paper, and a hake brush for blending tools.

I'm focusing on light and shadow on this one. This is 14 x 11 graphite on Bristol Vellum paper. For pencils, I'm using 0.5mm Pentel P205 mechanical pencils with 4H, 2H, H, B, and 2B leads. I'm blending using a medium tortillion, cotton swabs, soft tissues, and a hake brush. I'm lighting the highlighted areas by dabbing a kneaded eraser in the area I want to lighten. I'll be posting an update soon!
