    Dog Portrait, my first time!

    This is my first time I let someone talk me into doing a portrait of their dog. I don't really know dogs that well. I am really a cat person, but I think this came out rather well. Took a long time due to the complicated fur patterns and the any layers of ink required to get the really dark parts. Too much fur!

    Very nice! I am still in awe of your style. I love how loose it is while still being so dynamic and exploding with emotion.

    I noticed earlier today while looking at the original that one of the eyes is looking forward and one to the dog's left. Darn! Dog's eyes are harder to do than horse's . So much like human's eyes.

    I think it's great. I think his one eye looks like he is raising his "eyebrow" so to speak.

    If you want to practice on another dog you can use mine : )

    Man, did I open a can of worms! I keep trying to tell you guys, " I can't draw dogs!"

    Actually, all those dogs look like they are so full of character. Makes me want to rethink being a cat person.
    I am working on a horse right now and for some reason, having a heck of a time making it look like the horse. I am just out of sorts, and coming down with a cold.
    Thank you for offering your dear dogs for me to artistically mutilate. (not how it sounds)

    How about chickens?

    My kids somehow conned me into letting them have a couple chickens. Loved them but they were both Roosters and the neighbors were NOT happy! LOL
