Hey there –
I’m Demos, new to this forum. This is a drawing of my sister’s Puggle. I used graphite pencils and yellow Polychromos on toned paper. One thing I was confused about was figuring out which part of her face is in shadow, and which is just brown fur (so distinguishing local value from shadow). Generally confused (with portrait drawing as well) as to what value to draw dark colored surfaces (e.g brown fur, lips) relative to light colored surfaces in shadow (a shaded white of the eye, shaded light fur, etc).
Here’s the reference I drew from: https://imgur.com/a/yBOAjeS
Thank you! 🙂
