I now realize how important directional strokes are in Pen and Ink.

I am finding  it hard to focus on the techniques of PNI and at the same time watch the directional
changes needed to made the figure look realistic/believable.  I am sure more practice will help
immensely!!!!!

Hi Dennis and Nolan, I have joined the Pen and Ink Club and could not find the pencil drawing for the Cheetah. It would seem that Ray is also having a problem in finding it.  Please can you direct me to where I can locate it. Many thanks,  Patricia

Dear Ray and Happychappy;

I don't recall getting a template.   I think I made one from Dennis' final rendering found
in the reference material at the bottom of the screen in the video.

Hope this helps!  :painting:
