This pup portrait is a rendering of a dog I have shown work of before. This is a photo. I also did a more recent quick sketch .
In the latter she had a grooming not strictly for cosmetic reasons. As she is part Bichon she suffers from allergies and the vet recommended the crew cut. Anyway this was using a photo taken before she lost her locks. Took about 2 hours. Definitely getting faster at these photo studies.
