Default Three new portraits!

First of all, this is Dekka's Peek. I've been trying my hand at horses again, since I have none in my portfolio. This was fun, definitely some things I need to work on, but good practice! Also played around with varied line colours.


Next, Ronin and Kaylee for SizzleDog! This one was VERY challenging, in a good way. I had drawn Ronin before, but much more "toony". This was a challenge in drawing a more stoic, poised dog, and also a more realistic style. I'm VERY pleased with the result, and Sizzle is too.


And finally, a bust portrait of Finnegan. I was sort of using him as a guinea pig to test some techniques with ink pen opacities, so this is a bit unpolished, but I really liked the expression.


Enjoy!

LOve Finn...the dobies' structure looks good and the horse lighting is quite pleasant.

So it was Finn! The black around the nose really threw me off, didn't know if it was a brother/sister portrait.

Yeah, that's part of the "unpolished" part. There's way too much black on his nose, his tan markings are a bit off, his right (our left) ear has too much tuck... :P I want to fix it up though, I really like it.
