One artist to follow would be Cuong Nguyen. The link to his website is Cuong (https://www.icuong.com/). If you Google him, you'll see quite a few videos. If you go to Youtube you can search for animal portraits in pastel pencils. Start there.

I agree, Cuong Nguyen is a first rate artist to study! But I'd also look at Karen Howard's work The link to her website is https://www.zhibit.org/karenhoward. Landscape, still life, portraiture, and wildlife, in equal perfection!
