yorkie by eidolic yorkie by eidolic
11x14" graphite

meh... Glad to be done with this one. Last dog I have lined up for now. I was given a blurry 4x5" photo of this dog and it made it so hard. Was one of those drawings that I just couldn't wait to be done with and it really put a damper on my motivation for it. haha. oh well.

Thanks for looking!!!

The delicate light tones really make this portrait beautiful. I am truly ashamed myself, I complain if the photo is even smaller than a piece of copy paper! I need to step it up!!!!

Oh dear, blurry photos do not make for a happy artist. The anatomy of this piece is wonderful, but I can tell that you were not quite able to see the textures terribly well.

Such a cute dog!!! There's so much detail and work in this, down to the tiny little bumps on the nose! The eyes really stand out to me, they're so glossy and shiny against all that fur :] The only suggestion I would have is that you should try to avoid outlining, rather use a contrasting background. Other than that, this is a great drawing!

thanks. Ya I kinda do the outlines on purpose with white fur because it's such a pain to have to spend the time darkening in a good background to contrast it when it is a commission piece. So lately I've been sort of using the outlines as a personal style I guess. ha. if that makes any sense. appreciate it!

well with that attitude!! :) Don't worry, it took me like 5 or 6 years to improve. If you keep at it and have to desire to learn, you'll look back and go "wow!"

Great looking! The dog has so much personality! It is so adorable! The only thing is, as it goes farther back it loses something it should not. It just seems that, that part is not as up to par as the other parts. Also at first glance I thought it was floating but then I saw the grass. Great piece though. Beautifully done and just great craftsmanship.

I completely sympathise with the poor reference photo problem ~ though you'd never guess it from the finished drawing. It's turned out really well. You'll be glad to see the back of it, but I'll bet the owners are thrilled with it!
