Drawing realistic animals - its all about the pastel layers
I thought some might find this photo useful to see.
It shows how I build up the layers of pastel.
left is the initial under layer
Middle is that layer blended in (I used a stump)
Right has the darks in, then the lights put on top.
All my drawing don't always follow this process exactly, but I do 90% of the time
Here's a great video showing my layering process with various supplies.
