Hedgehog - student project

Drawing realistic sketches are not my specialty, but I had a great time drawing this headhog. 

First I got a picture from web, and turned into Black and White, so I could see shades better. 

Then sketch.. 

Then final ink drawing.. 

My challenge was to draw negative space like white part of fur. I can probably keep going, but I liked it, and didnt want to mess up, so I stopped here. 

Thank you so much for a great class! I enjoyed very much!
