|"Jack," the Jack Russell Terrier|
This piece is also an example of "Criss-Cross" line work, which is very good for animal fur/hair. Ironically, considering all the pen & ink work I've done over the years, this was not one of the pen & ink marks I have commonly used. Considering how much fun it was to do AND how well it handled the dog's hair I'm amazed that I haven't used it before. (If I had it would have saved me a lot of textural frustration rendering animals, let me tell you!) Now that I know about it I will certainly want to do more with this type of line work.
