Lots of grass!

I decided to start tackling more of the grass today...a long tedious process almost as tiring as drawing the fur itself. Believe me, it is easy to loose yourself in all that grass!
It can be difficult to create realistic grass using graphite since the lighter strands are created by negative drawing. Of course, I could spend many, many more hours reworking the grass and improving the look but I feel it is not necessary here since the main focus is on the dog.

Lots of grass. WOW
I agree grass is long hard tedious work and the lovely dog could well get lost in it. Looks subtle the way you have done it. Love the fur and the expressions is lovely on the dog.

Your work is amazing.
