Gorgeous dog, but he looks more like a setter or a spaniel than a terrier! Perhaps you meant an English Setter? I am not an expert on dog breeds, but I looked up pictures (the dog looks to be one) and the name mix-up would make sense. He's very realistic! I wish I could do eyes and fur that well with charcoals! I'm working on a beagle and a bulldog now, so I'm realizing that it's not easy! Keep up the good work!

Oh, thank you. You're more observant than I am - it's a setter, all right. It featured prominently on NatGeo's February 2012 cover article. The key to drawing animals, I found, was to pick one with longer hair and hope for the best. Just like skin, short hair can be outright pain to draw while long locks come in nice, easy sweeps. Good luck!

Thanks for the advice! For the past few years I've just been teaching myself when it comes to drawing so advice is really useful!
