Dog Study

Same as the horse study before I go through the steps of learning the animal anatomy. This assignment was to choose a dog and what better model then my own Dachshund Waffle. The final render is a little different than what I did with my horse.




I personal love the outcome of graphite on a wooden panel. I will continue doing animal drawings like this mainly pets. I do commissions, so if you would like to get your own pet portrait, feel free to contact me via email. 



Winter

With thanksgiving over christmas is fastly approaching which means I have a massive pile of cards I must send out but 1st I need to create a nice illustration for them. So I went with a winter snowy theme and a beautiful red cardinal. Plus I need the digital painting practice this is the start of it.

Dog Portrait

So lately me and my boyfriend have be missing are beloved little dogs back home. So I finally decided a picture is not enough to capture their personalities. A dog portrait it was! I choose my boyfriend dog Samson a chiwawa miniature pinscher mix. This little dog fits his name well for a small dog he has a very huge personality.




So I used a combo of 2 different images of Samson to capture his figure. I using a wood panel and sketched in graphite. Then with all my details down I plan to paint over the graphite. Currently still painting it will post as soon as done. But this is a very fun little project and we can't look at it without saying awww.





Update!!! This dog portrait is finally finished ! Good advice to doing a water color piece on wooden panel is carefully choose your panel going with the more pricey one is worth it.
