Yes, my animal faces are very one dimensional compared to human faces. For my part though, I've always had trouble drawing hair. Skin textures are much easier for me.

I love the drawing!

Nice drawing. The eyes looks very human though.

Thankyou all for your replies very interesting.

wonderful job

Excellent drawing.  Is this all in pencil?  Very good. Have you tried charcoal? I did my cat in charcoal and it was a breeze. I was actually surprised when I stepped away and my cat was looking back at me. It's my only animal portrait and it was very easy compared to portraits of people.

Hi all,

I draw animal portraits all the time, I just can not draw people for some reason.
