Just cranked this out.
I went back into the archives, found this previous little thumbnail, worked it up, using my favorite prismacolor pencil: tuscan red. It has such a soft, buttery line. I was going thru some old drawings; drawings i meant to plus out but ran out of time. Compare the old cat drawings to this one. What a world of difference! It pays to practice!

I returned to an eohippus sketch (see blog archives) i did a while back and painted it for an exercise. I imagined a dark red brown creature who could easily slip into the dappled shadows in a mist filled forest. This is acrylic on canvas paper with several layers of gloss medium inbetween the paint.
