New Fur Technique

I decided to try something new with this new snow leopard drawing (I just love these cats!), to loosen up my technique a little. I started with a base of charcoal applied with a blending stump to get the right value of the fur, then I added the spots with the 6B pencil and a bit of fur texture with the 2B pencil.
I'm going to continue the rest of the drawing this way, and I think it's a good way to achieve realism without getting into too much detail.
