WIP - Bengal Tiger

As I mentioned previously, my new project is a bengal tiger. I am working directly from one of my own photographs, and am just over five hours into it. In order to capture the differences in color of the fur, I am using a combination of charcoal and graphite - charcoal for the black stripes and graphite for the gold and white areas. As I am fairly new to this style of drawing, I am experimenting a little. The bridge of the nose has several layers because I keep thinking it's not dark enough. I may make it darker still, I don't know. At any rate, I like how it's coming along. I'll post an update in a few days when the head is done.
