Finally got back at it so thought I´d show you how my ¨Snoop-a-doop¨ is progressing.  ;D Almost done! Just a few things to touch/tidy up, and then a few short curled whiskers.
Not a great photo, the colour (especially background) is a bit off. I have a new pup to paint! A friend saw Snoopy´s initial charcoal sketch and wants a painting done of her little dog! Will post a photo of her later, she´s going to be a real challenge.... hair everywhere!  :doh:    :2funny:



Cheers, Val

you have done a fabulous job Val, especially on the nose and eyes :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
Tip - just soften the outer edge of the shadow cast by the collar by using flicks that resemble hair O0

Ta so much everyone, you´ve all just made my day!  :blush:      :cloud9:
Nolan, actually the grey on the top and bottom of the collar is part of the collar. I put some hairs over the top, I wondered how the grey at the bottom would translate.    ??? Will have to have another look at that.
Dennis, thanks ever so for a great introduction to pastels... even if that misty mountain still gives me grief!  :2funny:    I should have another go at it on some decent paper this time  :fight:
Cheers, Val

okay so what you want to do then is this:


add a quick shaded shadow underneath the collar O0
