Dog Resting on Blanket in Conte and Charcoal

I finished this drawing as a belated Christmas gift this past week. I’m really happy with how it came out. I always forget how much I love to work with conte and charcoal. It’s messy but so satisfying to carve out the figures. I kept the blanket loose and sketchy feeling because I wanted the dog to take the spotlight.

And yes, the dog’s eyes really were a deep blue and he would look at you like a human.
