Nancy.... this is really wonderful. WOW, that is a BIG cat....does the pup have a chance? I do recommend that you do a 'smoothing' effect with a smudge stick (from your local art stores) to help blend your pencil strokes. Other than that, these are fabulous.
WONDERFULLY CAPTURED. I STUDY AS A HOBBY THE BEHAVIOR OF ANIMALS AS THEY INTERACT WITH EACH OTHER. YOUR DRAWING IS PERFECT. I WOULDN'T CHANGE A THING. KEEP UP YOUR GOOD WORK. LOVE TO SEE MORE OF YOUR WORK.
