There’s something I just love about dogs with wrinkled up noses. Boxers, pugs, bulldogs, bullmastiffs, etc. They are so beautiful. Which brings me to the purpose of this post…a portrait of a bullmastiff. I liked the black face and the fawn colored fur of this animal. I always mean to draw more dogs, as they vary so widely in appearance.
-Approximately 11×11 inches, drawn on Strathmore Bristol 500 series Plate. This is an extremely smooth paper that is of good quality and stands up to a lot of layering. It was a bit tricky to get the darks I wanted because of the very smooth surface. The drawing is a bit lighter than I’d have liked it to be, but it took about as much as it could.
-Graphite (I like to use mechanical pencils more than wood pencils because of the small, sharp lead.) I used mainly HB mechanical, as well as some 2B clutch pencil.
Thanks for looking.
