Adding Fur Texture

Again my use of the drawing tablet is pretty unsubtle, so this dog is turning out a bit hairier than he really is! Still, you get the idea. See how I've uses short, directional marks along the dog's face and ears, drawing where there is dark fur, taking it back towards the ight fur. Careful, smooth shading keeps the eyes looking bright and shiny. The dog's leathery nose gets smooth, even shading too. I've used the eraser to work back into some ares too, to soften marks. I've fully erased the construction lines, though often parts of these are left in a sketch. I'm not being too exact about this - all of these lines are drawn quickly and energetically.
