Update 1

Update 2

 

The first step is to draw the outline of the cat's main features to form  a  rough sketch.

Hamlet's head is almost complete. The short fur on his face took many hours to complete.

Update 3

Update 4

More and more fur is added using several different grades of pencils.

Hamlet's portrait  is coming to life. I love his little foot pads!
