Progress of my drawing "You've found me".

I didn't write comments on the steps separately, but I think you can pick up some clues, how I drew the fur.
I usually start my drawings with putting down a light layer of graphite on the whole piece and shading the darkest parts
After I roughly sketched up the features of the cat's face and the darkest stripes, I use a paper tissue to smudge the pencil strokes and get the tonal values right (roughly) part by part.
Next with a very sharp pencil (2B, 4B or 6B on the dark hair, 3H, H on the very light hair) I draw the strands (yes one by one :nod:, but it's worth the effort) for the light strands of hair and the whiskers I used sharpened eraser (if the erased line is not thin enough, I shade it around with a 3H pencil).
On the blackest parts I used Staedtler Mars Lumograph 8B pencil.

Really good idea to share your steps with Us and again, your are incredibly talented with Graphite pencils. I also like to draw animals in Pastels (soft ones or pencils) but with less talent Sweating a little...
