Pencil Drawing of a Pit Bull

Well, here’s another pencil portrait of a dog; this time it’s a pit bull named Chelsea.

I thought that short hair would take less time, but once I got into it, I wanted to do it properly so it ended up taking a couple of days. Drawing fur is definitely slower with colored pencils than with graphite.

I added some blueish and pinkish tones to it here and there to make it look more realistic. I also added a few details on the eyes (that weren’t in my reference photo) to make them more interesting.
