Cracker Jax

Introducing Jax the mixed breed. The first commission I received at Mutts Mania [the fundraiser for the animal shelter I participated in]. I'm so proud to finally be giving money to the shelter via my artwork. I tried a few different techniques I'm learning from fellow artists on eyes, noses, and fur rendering and trying to slowly apply that to my own style of scratchboard. I feel a lot less stressed having this commission finally done. Now I want to take a short break before I start my next commission and play with my new Golden Open Acrylic paints!

Adorable. What detail! My mother works with Marty at the school, I'm trying to get a decent photo of my Siamese to commission from you. You do beautiful work!
