Drawing a Day Challenge 2018: Day 19

This drawing took forever today….but it’s not entirely the drawing’s fault. There is so.much.fur. in this drawing which took awhile, but the biggest time sucker?

Getting to watch one of my most favorite movies EVER while drawing!


I know, I should have waited until after the drawing to watch it, but we just got The Greatest Showman on digital download and I just couldn’t wait until Saturday night when we surprise the kids with it. I think I did more movie watching than drawing this morning, and if you haven’t seen that movie, it is a MUST SEE! I can’t say enough about how wonderful it is, and the kids and I are obsessed with the soundtrack.

But we’re here to talk about drawings and not movies, so I will continue on with today’s drawing!

Inspired/nominated by: My youngest kiddo! I’m not sure exactly what prompted this suggestion, but I’m so glad he mentioned it because even with all the fur, I loved working on this one!

Favorite parts: The eyes (but is that surprising?)! I also love the ears, the nose, and how the fur turned out!

Challenging parts: Concentrating while watching the movie was hard 😉 But I think the hardest thing was just figuring out the fur and how best to draw it.
