Treacle in Progress Step 1

I spend quite along time mapping out the subjects fur and eyes, the MOST important part of a Portrait is the eyes if you get this wrong then start again as this will make or break the Portrait.  The nose and ears are also very difficult but once they are all drawn on paper this helps to map out the face perfectly. Once I am happy with the sketch I start to work on the colour, again the eyes to start with and I add blocks of very rough colour to the fur.
