Another commission for a family friend. They really wanted this by a certain date so I put my current project aside and spent a good two days on this one working to get it done on time. Unfortunately, the photograph that was supplied isn't the best but it was the only one the owner had. So, I made apples into oranges. Is that how it goes? This time instead of trying to get the texture on the nose, which I have yet to perfect, I decided to just highlight it with some cross hatching and I think it works. At least until I find the right texture. I also had more fun than I expected getting the crazy hair on this dog. Well here is Pooh, who is a hyper active Bichon Frise that really needed a hair cut.
