Ooooh. Remind me never to try to draw a jowly dog again! Not unless I have a much better reference photo. I was in over my head and struggled with this one, start to finish.
It’s my neighbor’s birthday tomorrow and my neighbor is a Rottweiler fan. Fortunately she’s also refreshingly frank. So when I give it to her with the request, “Tell me if it’s complete crap and you don’t want it,” she’ll do me the favor of being honest rather than painfully polite. If she says she likes it and wants it, she’ll mean it. (I like that in a person in general, but with art, honesty is a service; it’s the only way I’ll ever learn.)
Anyhow, here it is. 12×9″, graphite pencil and white colored pencil, on the “wrong” side of sand-colored Canson Mi-Tientes paper.
