Working on the Fur

It may seem odd to so enjoy working on the fur when it’s so repetitive – adding layer after layer of pretty much the same thing.  But it’s so amazing to see the lines slowly transform into something that actually looks like fur – soft here, wiry there, short here, long there – bringing the dogs to life.  The challenge with the black fur is to make it rich looking and not just a dead black solid color.  And the challenge on the other dog is to get the markings right so that they help define the form.
The background seemed too spotty so I added color to even out and enlarge the cloud shapes, especially on the right.  Now I’m happier with the sky, but the icy tundra definitely needs work.
