I was commissioned to do a pet portrait for a cute Corgi mix dog. I love doing pet portraits as I am a big animal lover myself with many pets of my own throughout my life. This is the reference photo I was given and my version of what I see him to be. I started out by sketching in pencil and then black lined him with ink. I then used markers to color him in and finished with colored pencil to add depth and texture.
He is fun, colorful and whimsical with a wee bit of seriousness to him.
His name is "Charlie"
