New ink portrait in progress

Here’s a couple pics showing the beginning of a pen-and-ink I’m working on. The basic shapes are lightly outlined with pencil, then I start the inking. In a “montage” style portrait like this, I do some inking on one “scene”, then some on the next, as it helps me develop each in relation to the others. I like doing montages, I think they’re a nice way to tell the “story” of the dog. The dog is “Bee”, an English Cocker Spaniel. This portrait is to commemorate her National Field Championship win.
