Not Quite Sure
I'm not quite sure what breed of dog this is. I found the reference on Wetcanvas by Sabarika. I like the way the dog looks so regal. Loved the coloring. This is the one I was working on yesterday and had given up on. But this morning I took another look and decided to press on. I didn't life off much either. Just reworked it. Maybe I was just at that ugly stage and couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel. Colored pencil work is like that.
I am at that stage with another dog portrait for the WDE at Wetcanvas. This a reference by Lisilk. A dog from the Bahamas called Zipper 2 after her own dog Zipper. That one I have done sketches and drawings of about 5 times.
This is after about 2 hours. I will plug on and finish it but wanted to get a scan of it at the 2-hr stage so that I can post it on the WDE. I don't time myself as I am up and down and let things steal my attention. So my work is not a steady two hours. But I pretty much know how long I have in the picture.
I started coloring with cp before I finished the drawing. I am not sure if I will leave it as a partial portrait or add the ears and the rest of his face. Just depends on how the mood strikes me.
