Woof, woof, Harold.  You are really doing a great job on dogs.

The eyes of the middle good are so good.  He keeps watching me.

  I'm very much a beginner so any comments will be gratefully received.  I started with the short haired dog rather than the light-haired because I'm keen to draw my whippet.
I don't know why, but I find it hard to get a chisel point on my pencils - cracking this would be helpful. I also struggle with tonal values and don't seem to get my darks dark enough.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Beautiful drawing of the dog Sally.


 I also had such a struggle to get my darks darker until Val mentioned that I should use a darker pencil to what Nolan was using in the demonstration.  While this was such an easy solution, when you are in the problem, it is hard to think of what to do to rectify it. This changed my entire drawings and I did so much better. Hope this helps you too.


As for the chisel point. Do you have a craft or Stanley knife?  Place the pencil with point resting on paper and continuously "shave" off one side of the pencil with the craft knife first and then turn it over and do the other side. Alternatively, you can take the pencil and rub the one side of the lead on a scrap piece of paper and when it looks like it is getting sharp, turn it over and do the same on the other side. Rather laborious and time consuming though. Hope I am explaining myself O.K. If not, I am sure another member will come along and help you out.

Great job Sally. Patricia has explained making the chisel point well. Nolan does a good video demonstration of it in the sharpening video in the beginning of the Let's Draw course.
