Mikkel by Louisalings Mikkel by Louisalings
This is a drawing of my mother’s Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever (she has two and they’re her whole life). She always talks about commissioning a drawing of them, so I wanted to make her this for last Christmas, but sadly it didn’t get done in time (because of my exams and... well, life...) but, yeah, it's done now! ^^;

This is the first time (and hopefully last!) I've ever drawn fur so... well, it's just one big experiment. I don't think it turned out too well but... yeah... :(


OBS: This is NOT edited in some photo-software program. This is a pure scan of the original drawing -it's only worsened by my stupid scanner- and it’s completely touch-free. I really hate when people automatically assume I've used Photoshop (or a similar program) to edit the details and contrast of my drawings. Just a little notion before anyone asks.

-

Medium; sketching pencils.
Time; forever and a day.
Size; A4 (8.3 inches × 11.7 inches).

I gave the original drawing away :)

Beautiful as always. 

Sorry that I have not been about, I sort of dropped off the face of the earth. But I have missed your lovely works!

And even without any practice on fur and this being your first you did awesome. It looks like fur to me. :D

Yes everything is well. :) The only thing we are doing is rearranging the living room (Which is where I sleep by choice.)
