As you can see, I have a little more time in the "Handsome Dani" portrait. I still need to fine tune the hands and add some more dark to the shadows. The mid tones might get some altering in the process, but my head is telling me to hold off with the hands until Danimal is in the drawing. Danimal is a black hamster, and I would like to see how his appearance on the paper meshes with the skin. The photo reference has some harsh contrasts that I think could translate well to paper. Time will tell!
