cinnsketchesThis 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.

  1. 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
