Cyril, well done!!!! :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

Here my drawing-

I have been fiddling with it for several days and decided "enough is enough". This was a great ending for Portrait drawing and I learned a great deal from Nolan.  :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou:

I did cheat on this drawing. Tried to erase out the whiskers, but couldn't get them light enough. Adding shading to one side just didn't work. Next I tried using a white colored pencil - didn't work. Finally tied one of my calligraphy "go to's" - Dr. Martin's Bleedproof White and a crow quill pen. Just to be sure I went over the whiskers a second time, once it was thoroughly dry.

Any comments or suggestions will be appreciated.
