Proud Member of
a Portrait of a Rottweiler
and Yellow Lab
commissioned to draw this beautiful Rottweiler named Maggie and her best friend
Suzie the Yellow Lab. They are drawn together in this
portrait as a memorial and tribute to two wonderful companions. Shown above are
the actual photos I drew their portrait from.
This is the
first stage of creating a portrait. I draw thumbnail sketches to decide on the
design of the portrait with the two dogs. The above pencil sketch that shows
where each dog will be placed on the paper.
I draw in the color on the dog nearest to the top, Maggie. Her mom
says she was as smart and sweet as she was beautiful ! I draw in
thousands of short, tiny pencil lines representing the fur of the
Rottweiler, all the while paying attention to which direction the fur is
going in. Highlights on her fur are drawn in next for dimension and
Finally, the second dog Suzie, the Yellow
Labrador, is drawn in. Highlights
showing the light shining on the dog's fur are also drawn in. Eye
detail is checked once again before completion. Eyes are the most
important feature on an animal showing their unique personality. Shown
above is the finished portrait showing both Maggie and Suzie together.
