Pet Drawings 14, 15

The first drawing of our dog Ruby was done with a Draughting #314 graphite pencil. It was drawn from a photo.
The second drawing of our cat Mr. Frodo was done very quickly, starting with a few gesture lines, followed by rapid shading, and finishing with line. I drew him from life as he was eating and I had to be quick because there was no telling how long he was going to remain in the pose. He moved just as I was getting to his food dish. Drawn with a 0.9mm mechanical pencil.

I am starting to grow into them Mr. Frodo and Ruby =) I am so used to seeing them everyday now, and I am not complaining at all. Great sketch work David!

What a beautiful series! I really like the contour cat drawings, no 7,8 and 9, I think.
