Yorkshire Terrier Finished
I am proud to announce that this little girl is finished. My poor 9b pencil is half the size that it started out as. It kept shrinking layer after layer. ;) The real payoff was when the tape came off. I love the crisp lines. This was the first time that I have had a black background. I found it to be very messy. The drafting tape is priceless in keeping the edge sharp and providing a white area around the drawing. When cleaning up the white border beyond the tape, I picked up the wrong eraser and created a smudge. :( Although it lightened up considerably, the tape has made enough of a border to mat around the drawing. *whew*
I will leave this little girl on the board for a few days before considering her finished. My next pic is ready to be put into a line drawing, and there will not be any fur on this one! ;) Just taking a little break to practice some hands again.
