Drawing Dogs & Cats - New Online Class

On the heels of the Watercolor Lettering Class I started Val Webb's on-line Drawing Cats & Dogs Class.  She is a great teacher and it is good to be back drawing again.  I forgot how long it takes to draw something with care and not with the intent to then paint it.  Basically we are just using 4B pencils and eraser so far.

The first couple of lessons were practicing drawing marks with a pointed and beveled edge pencil and lifting with a kneaded eraser.  We also experimented with different types of strokes to achieve the look of long silky hair, short curly fur and wavy long fur, we also worked on eyes for both cats and dogs and noses.
