This commission was especially fun. I was given total creative freedom, which can be either a blessing or a curse. In this case it was an absolute blessing because I had been looking at a lot of Peter Parnall’s work and I wanted to try something different.
I started by sketching the dog to get familiar with the forms, then I traced over my sketch with simple, bold, organic lines.
After transferring the lines to drawing paper, I colored each shape flatly with Prismacolor pencils and then traced over the lines with a 0.5 Copic pen.
The result was an exciting modern twist on a traditional portrait.

I was at Ashley blog couldn’t resist but to come and see, I especially love the fact that you explain how you went about your work. To many times people won’t say the process, oh for many. I love the dog, I will be back, thank you
As always Sheldon
Thank you! Often, the process is so inherent in the work that it doesn’t occur to me to mention it. I’ll keep this in mind for future posts.
