Dog portrait from photo, Patton


Been outside as today was a bit sunnier than the recent days of freezing fog so it was clean out in the shed and all my little animals came out to play. Their pens were in sunshine for a few hours so they made the most of it racing around before it was time to put them all back into their heated shed!!! And back to my current portrait, this is where I have got to with Patton, I have started to add the rocks and water now and it is starting to look a bit more real, this is taking almost as many hours as a coloured portrait with all those layers but the effect looks better than using different grades I think, it is the first time I have worked a portrait using just one pencil. It is an A3 sized portrait.
Also aside from everything else, I've managed to muck up my slideshow on my website, if you do visit and it's not working properly please be patient, hopefully it will correct itself after a couple of hours!!!
