I am learning so much here, I doesn't quite beat a workshop but it comes close! I've been going through the tutorials and trying to remember what I've learnt - It's hard, as the dementia years come closer!
I actually did a WIP on this one, mainly because it took so long I had plenty of time to take photos. It a mix of pastel pencils - Giaconda Kohinoors, Carbothellos, Derwent and some precious Pitts and some cheap Mont Martes - with underpaintings of a few Art Spectrum pastels. C&C's greatly appreciated.

Hello again, and thanks to everyone for your encouraging comments.
For Nadia and crazywoman53 who asked for the WIP, here it is - I might have to do it in a couple of replies.
Unfortunately I didn't photograph the first sketch!
1- Sketched, body blocked in and a start on the head (One ear done)
2- TWO ears! I can hear!
3- Folds of skin that form gliding 'wings' between front & back legs added
4- One back toe and more colour to body done
Ok, that's the first lot! I'll start another reply for the rest as my computer is getting slower by the minute!
