I'm quite pleased with how this is going, especially as I was unsure about whether I would like using pencils. I must admit I am now hooked on this new (for me) medium.

How wonderful. This is your first one? Remarkable. 

Looks good, Mike! Your layering on the fur is wonderful.

almost finished. just need to add whiskers but I need a white gel pen for that. can anybody recommend a make?

Nice job Mike!  Sakura gelly roll pen in white is a good one.

Yes, I have one and it's wonderful!  So wonderful I bought a bunch of Sakura gelly roll pens in a bunch of colors! I mean a bunch!  Really nice work, Mike!

Thanks, Sakura it is then.
I agree, Sakura Gelly roll. I've tried a number of white pens, this one gives a consistent line! One I tried was almost like chalk and ink mixed, very inconsistent lines, had to draw over two to three times for consistent lines! Too time consuming for me!

Great Coloured pencil work Mike, excellent layering for the fur!
Bought the Sakura pen but it doesn't seem to want to work on top of the colours.

fantastic work on the rabbit mike!
