Yorkie


Since I'm not a dog person, I presume this is a Yorkshire Terrier. It's all hair and eyeballs so maybe with a perm and a curling iron it could turn into something else! Hair is my least favourite thing to draw so I see a lot of room for improvement. I find it quite hard to do the fuzzy out of focus look but this dog did have quite definite and separate strands or locks. I used softer pencils than I normally use, 2B and 3B (on cartridge paper).

Hard to imagine there is room for improvement...you really did a smashing job. Especially for a non-dog person. I have so much trouble drawing my dogs...because they rarely sit still. Maybe I should try from a photo!

Wonderful drawing. The hair is very well done and his face is adorable!

That is a fantastic drawing Felicity! I think he's (she?) Norwich terrier, Yorkies have longer hair. You can see some here...

Hi Felicity
Wow, these are great. I especially love your cat drawings! I'm such a contour drawer that detailed and textured stuff like this impresses me beyond all measure.

I've been looking forward to seeing a new drawing on your blog through the holidays, and this one is such a treat. Really impressive!

Adorable and lively!

And I support your resolution to cut back on blog reading, even if I'm one of them. There's not enough time to live, create, AND view everyone's wonderful work. Sigh.

And yes, I did cut up that painting and reposition the pieces. Makes horizontal flow more interesting.

Although you don't like drawing hairs but I must say you are very gud at it. Even at one point of time I too tried to draw some sketches n mountains n scenery but later gave it up.

gud work
