My Art Journal

Well, I looked at a couple other's art journals & thought they were pretty awesome, so I wanted to start one of my own!
Currently, I am working on a painting of my 2 dogs, Meggie & Zero. Here's a picture of them & what the painting looks like at this stage.
I will keep updating the pages so that you can all see how the painting is coming along!

Yah I know! It's my luck I ended up with both poodles n their silly curls but I don't think the white guy will be too much of an issue because I just cut his hair before the picture lol As for the grey (his mom, coincidentally) will be another story...
I love your journal btw! Awesome stuff!

That's cool. I've always wanted to try an oval painting. Can't wait to see the progression

Well I'm keen to see how it progresses, it's a good learning curve to work from a tricky reference ;) You wouldn't believe how many terrible quality images, much worse than these, I am asked to draw a commission piece from. I feel bad charging full price for these works, as you just cannot get the detail you'd like into them.

And thankyou re: my art journal, haha it's confusing me seeing in my notifications 'my art journal' pop up, don't know whether it's yours or mine :P
