status subject 1

Here is the start of the layering on subject 1. I'm making small corrections as move along. I have not detailed the eyebrows here or included any lashes.

This second picture shows further corrections and detailed eyebrows. I still have not put in the lashes yet. The layering here has progressed. The eyes have been opened up a bit from the original source picture as requested.

This picture shows the change next to the composition sketch .

Composition Sketch of Twins

This is the composition sketch of twins that I've been commissioned to do.
It's a rough sketch mainly to get the placement and features in the right place.
The drawing will change a great deal during the drawing process as it takes shape as the layering progresses and adjustments are made.

Completed Dogs

Here are scans of the completed drawings of Shiloh and Sandy:

Project subject 2

Here is the initial sketch of the second dog Sandy.
Here is work in progress:

Project for a friend

I know it's been way too long! I started this project for a dear friend and I got way behind since I'm back to working again. I'm doing drawings of two dogs. This is a picture of the initial sketch of Shiloh...I know, it's a bit blurry.
Here is the final drawing of Shiloh done in color pencil. This is my first attempt at drawing an animal in color pencil, since I was in high it's been awhile. It's not an easy medium and requires many layers. Since the pencils are wax based, you can't erase them. You can lift up some of the color by using a kneadable eraser and pressing it on the areas.
I like control and detail, so I tend to choose mediums that are a bit time consuming.

Here's the source picture for comparison.
