I've wanted to do a portrait of Sinbad for a long time but having never done fur before I didn't know how to go about it. I looked through the few drawing books I have on animals to look for examples. Most were sort of vague on the fur part so I just went for it. It came out better than I expected and I learned how to get the effect I was looking for. I quit this drawing before actually finishing it for I feel I can improve upon it the next time I draw my little buddy. This is from a photograph when he was younger and looked better. Don't we all.
