I had another first today! How many of you choose to draw and paint the animal without his tongue showing LOL! Up until now, I've never painted a tongue that I can remember. Definitely NOT with Colored Pencils. This tongue was a challenge to get the tone, color and shape right. I'm a little unconventional in my approach with the colored pencils as well. I don't do color swatches, I do all my testing and mixing on the painting. I get some interesting results that way and so far, lucky accidents LOL!
I also darkened the dark side of the face and added more definition.
Hope you are enjoying this process with the colored pencil painting as much as I am painting it!
Thanks for stopping by :)
