I really enjoyed this class and found it very helpful.
I chose a dog as my subject because I liked the amount of texture I could add. I used a brushpen filled with ink. I think I started out a little too heavy and got more refined with the lighter strokes as I went along. I tried doing some of the fine details with a nib pen but I realised that once I got the hang of the brushpen it was a better choice for me.
I especially enjoyed this exercise because it gave the the opportunity to practice with the use of paper as a highlight. While I think there's a lot of improvement I was pleased with the textures of the fur and the contrast of the grass.
It's a good starting point and I definitely intend to practice some more.
