In celebration of National dog day I decide to make a cute decorative custom portrait of all my dogs.
I first start off with a clean sketch and bring that into photoshop.
In photoshop the lasso tool is your best friend for fast clean shapes. I block out all the shapes and build on top of that.
Details can then be added on top of those solid shapes.
One of my scruffy models Skipper my poodle.
Minnie the other poodle
Samson the tuff chihuahua
Waffle my goofy dachshund.
And finally sweet maggie girl the Rottweiler.
