Thank you for respecting this.


This is a comission for my boyfriends sister ^^
The dog's name is Flax, he's so cute and it was very fun to draw him
I really liked to draw his fur but I found the white fur difficult to draw. I'm
actually thinking of starting to draw animals more often. I'm very into
huskies and wolves at the moment :D
I drew Flax from a photo but I came up with the background myself.


Materials:
- Pastel pencils for colouring :heart:
- Graphite pencils for sketch and small details.

Drawing time:
- 10h +

Yes, you should definitely draw more animals! You've drawn Flax beautifully. :-) You've drawn the white fur really well and I love that little curl of black fur on the top his head too...and the colours and background scenery really make the picture pop! It's fantastic. :-) I expect your boyfriend's sister fell in love with this as soon as she was given it! :-)

Yes, you really did make the colours pop and I should have mentioned in my last comment that I love how you have added the leaves around his feet too leading back to the trees...it was a great idea and much better than adhering to the photograph background. You've done him justice, for sure. He's such a cute dog!

:iconmypleasuresignplz: That's make me happy too! ;-) I don't write sentiments that I don't mean. I never have and don't plan to either, so I'm glad that they have made you happy. I think your work is lovely, shows such character and you experiment with ideas too which brings a further beauty to your work. ;-)
