Default Borzoi Sketch (to be an Oil Painting)

Hi, I'm new here, but have been hanging around, reading and watching for a while...

Anyway, after that's done with, I just thought I'd share a 1st draft of a Borzoi Oil. I just sketched it out, and am now working on getting more detail into the fur/puffy tail/shadows. Then comes paint lol. Anyway, enough blabbering. Here it is -

Thank you. I sketched it out REALLY lightly so the lines won't show up on the final. And the picture was taken too dark

Thanks. I've seen alot of oyur work and having you say that means alot to be smkie...

I've been (EDIT that'd be drawing not rawing ) drawing for about 3 years but this is my first REAL attempt at an animal...
The amazing thing is the skrtch took me an hour, and that's longer than I normally take to draw. And this was just a rough...lol.

Anyway, thanks for the comments and C+C, will be posting an update as soon as I get the picture up. Try to take it in some light as well. I just like to draw in the dark lol

Looks great so far!! Can't wait to see the finished article!! I like to paint with oil paints from time to time! Although I find them frustrating because they take soooooo long to dry!!

Yeah, I've tried one before and my Kitties stepped all over it before it had time to dry lol...It's probably be hard after the first coat, bt it'll have time to dry because I'm going to toronto for 4 days and that gives it some time.
