I just finished this drawing of my nephew and his dog. I was going to try to do a background, but decided to leave it as is. This was done on 9 x 12 vellum with h2, hb and 2b as well as a kneaded eraser and tortillion.

I have messed up plenty by over doing a background. The background should be a plan from the start. Plan the depth and composition of it. Your picture is great without it.

Thanks guys! Yeah, I was worried about messing the whole thing up by trying to throw in an unplanned background. They were pleased with it so I'm happy, too. :)

Sometimes a background can take away from the main subject. You made the right decission. Very nice work of course.
