Geeze, I'm so sorry for disappearing everyone. I didn't even see this thread. But I'm not dead! I've just been super distracted lately and forgot to check in here. I hope I didn't make anyone worry too much. You're all so kind.
@Tak I'm so happy you like the portrait. It was an honor to draw it for you!
And to answer your question, @Skybreeze , the medium is charcoal.
I've kind of just recently gotten back into drawing after a long hiatus, and just started this Instagram so there's not a lot up there yet, but I intend to keep updating it. Tak sort of inspired me to get into pet portraits, so I've done a couple more since hers.
