I keep my pencils very sharp. Then, the last thing I do, I take a sharp pointed razor knife and carefully and very lightly scrape some of the pencil off the paper to show the white under the color. This is for highlights and light on the fur.

Good luck!
Thank you for sharing that! I really appreciate your help!
Best of luck and Happy drawing! :)

Oana, I use a empty/used up pen to make indentions or scratches into the paper before I start to add color in these areas, and the pencil leaves the indentions white.
I added a drawing I did of my dog to illustrate, notice around the eye, nose and in the ear.
hope that helps

Thank you so much for your suggestion! :) It's indeed very impressive what you can achieve by using just a simple used pen! :) I'm your fan, Brenty! :)
Best wishes and happy drawing! :) :)
