From a cool reference by Mike Haworth. I changed the dark background to a much lighter value so as not to compete with the cubs.

Really good pen work Christel, you've made the fur look really soft and I like the simplified background. I love the paws. :)

I want one too! So cute and cuddly and very well rendered in ballpoint pen! You are a master at so many different art mediums!

I love how they relate to each other. Very nice noncompetitive background.
Do you start with a light pencil sketch first or go straight at the paper with ink?

Thanks Bobby. I start off with pencil to mark out my important lines. I can then start to go over with pen filling in and layering.

Great pen work I love to sketch in ball point as well. Good choice not to do too much with the background but the hint is a nice touch.
