Ruff Sketch

Cats are always in my life, it seems, but there’s definitely part of me which would like a dog. Maybe one a bit like this…

I’d been playing about with the scruffiest brush I could find (an old toddler’s poster paint/glue brush) and some Indian ink. My final doodle of the short session was a quick sketch, using up the last of the ink held in the bristles. I really like the way that the fur textures develop from the way that the unevenness of the coarse, springy brush spreads the ink. Right at the end, I touched up the eyes and mouth a little with a fineliner. This was such a fun little sketch to make.
