This is my attempt at the 3rd project in the book “Drawing Realistic Pets from Photographs” by Lee Hammond.  I don’t really know if I’m learning anything from this book.  The photograph references given are very small and printed so darkly that is is hard to create a contour drawing from them.  I actually photographed the book reference and lightened it considerably before working on this drawing.  I’m not sure if I will try to complete any more of the projects due to the bad printing of the references which is a shame because the author has a nice style to emulate.  I’m still not reproducing realistic fur.
