Here are some progress pictures from one of my sketches. It might not be an animal, but the principles apply to different subjects. This is a pencil sketch of a pearl earring.
When I work on my sketches, I often work in my favorite sketchbooks. This particular sketchbook is a Strathmore sketchbook and I love the hard cover books. Spiral bound books can be outright annoying at times, since I'm left handed. I don't like having to flip the book over.
Here is another shot of my sketchbook.
Here is the final sketch. It isn't a perfectly round pearl but pearls normally aren't.
Enjoy your day!
