Latest in progress

Hello again, hope everyone survived christmas with their sanity intact. Happy New Year to you all.

i thought it might be interesting to let you in on the process of creating one of my pet portraits, show the various stages it goes through, and the time it takes to do.
This is a double commission, two dogs, heads only, on a sheet of A3 paper. The dogs are a pair of very sweet mongrels, and i have several photos from the owner, which i have scanned in so i can see them better.

After scanning them in i can crop them, change the contrast, blur the background, and whatever else it takes to make the best possible Pet Portrait.
Once i have drawn the rough pencil outlines i will post them before i continue.
