Wolf Drawing - Adding Detail
Building detail and texture with short strokes in 8b pencil

Now I want to develop some of the details, darkening the facial markings and the dark fur on the wolf's eyes and ears. Use an 8b pencil with short strokes in the direction of the fur growth. So on the wolf's ears, you can see short outward strokes. The fur texture along the right side of the face is developed. Notice the way the direction of the fur changes from the face to the ruff.
