WIP - Charcoal Snow Leopard

snow leopard drawing in progress
I am now about four and half hours into my drawing. After finishing the head and paws, I started on the left side and am working my way to the right. Since I am right-handed, I don't want to smudge what I have done. I'm using the same techique I described in the previous post, as far as the dark and light areas go. In addition, I used the kneaded eraser to lift out areas of highlights and to pull light fur into the dark spots. I went back over with a 3B graphite pencil to add a little coarseness to the fur. I'm happy with how it's turning out. Hopefully I'll have more time to work on it this weekend.
