Dog Portrait from Photo, Liam & Clyde


A couple of updates for Liam and Clyde, so far I have not used a black pencil at all!!! I ave used persian grey, petrol grey, dove grey, cloud blue and white for the fur, no black dog is ever really black. I used the white to add the sheen to their fur, these two have very shiny fur as it is sort short and in good condition so the sheen plays a big part. The white also works as a kind of blender, if you use it over where two colours meet it blends them together leaving no edge. Plus I've received more images of Baron (the rottie) Daisy (the english bull terrier) and Saffie (a rottie cross not a cross rottie!) and this is my chosen image. Their owner had originally asked for just their heads but this lovely shot is too good to miss so she is happy for me to use this one. It is well balanced and it also means they are all in proportion, a very difficult thing to guess when images are on different shots sometimes. I'm looking forward to this one as it is just such a nice shot and will be getting on with this very soon.
