Many reasons drew me to start this new piece, the "new in-between commission" piece (reference photo courtesy of the talented dog photographer Erin Vey): magical textures, contrasting shapes, radiating lines, strong composition, new breed territory (never drawn a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel) and of course big round irresistible puppy eyes.
So far so good, yet have had to put the pencils down for a while as a new commission (sadly non-shareable) is now on the go.
Below: steps one and two down the road.
Many many more to come.
Technical detail: up to this point, all has been rendered using a 2B clutch.
p.s: these are the puppy eyes referred to in last week's post...never did get to pop the last "Happy Birthday balloon", it blew away from the balcony to a chorus of shrieks and woops of delight !
