Default Recent sketches and art - dump!

Here's some of the new sketch sale results, as well as a new portrait!

Kai and Brawt, for MisssAshby!


Rascal, for JessLough!


Darien and Sport, for Dekka!


And finally, Rosey for JessLough. This one was a sketch too, but I made it all fancy for her since she's always helping me out with Finnsitting and such. <3


BTW, the sketch sale is still going on, I could really use the fundraising help! Check out the details by clicking here! And as always, if you're interested in a detailed portrait like Rosey's, click the banner in my sig or email/PM me.

Thanks as always for your tremendous support! You guys rock.

Wow, why the heck did it tag it in HTML and not BBcode? :P Weird!

were Kai and Brawt actually sitting together like that? or can you take two individual pics and make the dogs look like they are together?

Also how good of a quality pic do you need to be able to make a sketch?

Nope... she requested the two dogs together in the portrait, Brawt looking a little silly and Kai tilting her head a bit. She sent me a few reference photos of each, and I made it that way!

Personally I get a bit tired of pet portrait artists who only copy photos. I find it usually makes a portrait lifeless and dull. I work from specific photos when requested, and even then I tend to add a touch of flair. The important part is bringing out the animal's personality!

Also, having some blurry/bad photos is no big deal. I like having at least one better-quality photo of the pet, if possible, to make sure I get markings and such correct.

Anytime! Just let me know. I'd love to do the two of them... I love Maggie's markings and Caesar is so squishy! <3
