Pastel of ZZ – catching up from the past….

I can’t believe it’s been so long since I posted to my blog so here is one to catch up from the past.  I started this pastel of ZZ in late 2011 and finished in Fall of 2012.  I would work on it a little here and a little there.  It is soft pastels on Velvet paper.  Here is the progression.  I apologize that some of the photos aren’t that great.

Here’s the photo that I used as reference:

Here’s the progression of my work, starting with just getting the basic colors in, adding the background, and progressively adding detail and additional colors.

Here’s the final picture where I added the last little details (note that he has whiskers now):

I hope you enjoyed seeing the progression. It took me a long time to do but I think it turned out well.
