Buddy the Blue Heeler – Finished

03 Jul

I am pleased to say that this drawing is finally finished.  The owner of this dog was very pleased with the likeness.  This was not a commission, but I did use a friend’s reference photo for this dog, so his approval was important to me.

I’ve pushed the darks all around the piece, added some texture, darkened the shoulder and neck, and finished the collar since the last update.  Of course, I also added the whiskers.  No dog or cat is complete without whiskers!

I have had a great deal of fun with this drawing, and though it’s good to be done, I enjoyed it so much I was almost a bit sad to see it finished.  Ah well, on to the next project!

      Cassie, that is so kind of you. Thank you! Wow, really a great comment! 🙂 It is worthwhile to take your time in drawings. I’m sometimes too patient. I’d love to turn out drawings more quickly. But as it stands, I usually end up doing maybe 3 or 4 stippled drawings per year due to my slow style. Oh well.

      Thanks again! It really does mean a lot! 🙂
