Bella's Portrait
« on: March 24, 2015, 03:00:34 AM »
I guess I'm on a roll to draw my dogs! Did this one tonight. Not really pleased with the fur, but her face and expression really look like her.

Used charcoal, pastel pencils, & soft & hard pastels. On Canson Mi-Teintes paper 8" x 10".

Again, comments & suggestions always welcome. Thanks, Kris

There's just something I can't quite put my finger on...

Are you sure about the size of the head - her ears and snout look, well, large.

Good observation Alan. As a matter of fact, her ears are very large as well as her muzzle which looks kind of squared off from a front view. She's a big long-haired Shepard.  :D

The white shine on the nose makes it look a little con caved on top, it is a very small image though so I cannot see detail.
