Dog Portrait from Photo, Liam & Clyde

I'm waiting for a new photo of Saffie from the trio of dogs portrait (hopefully the post will not let me down and they will arrive today or Monday) plus I have put the portrait of Jess to one side whilst I figure out the ground (I'm not sure the muddy pool will translate well on a portrait) so in the meantime I have drawn out Liam and Clyde's portrait. As you can see the reference photo looks a little out of sinc at the top as their owner accidently cut off Clyde's head but luckily she took another shot straight after and although it was blurry I could steal the head part and paste them together, good job this was very basic as my editing skills are very shoddy to say the least. I have darkened the contrast quite a bit (this is advanced for me) to show the details I have got down so far as they are really quite light and are for guidence only for when I begin adding layers. So far I have used just two colours on the dogs, a very pale blue and a grey, not a bit of black in sight, then I started to pick out areas for blocking in such as the eyes and collars to prevent me from losing them. I have also been asked to add a little drawing of their paws, I have a lovely photo of their paws crossing as though they were holding hands and this will be added a bit later.
