Piper by eidolic Piper by eidolic

8x10" Colored pencil
7-9 hours

This commissioned portrait was done in all colored pencils and the background is graphite. The pose of the reference was kind of an odd one so I think the angle of the head in respect to the body is a bit off, but I tried! haha. Hope you like it :)

I think you did a great job with this. I do a lot of dog drawings myself and I think the angle of the head looks fine IMHO.

Wow this is really amazing art work! Did you use a reference picture, a live model or just used your imagination? I love details and realism in this picture. I have to fav this one, this is sooo amazing! I wish I could color that well with pencils.. my pencil pictures have always, hm, failed eventually. :'D
