Doing Portraits of pets is always slightly stressful but hugely satisfying. A good portrait brings to life the spirit of a beloved pet through a combination of realism, careful posture selection, and added artistic effect. Being a vet, I get to know animals as patients, companions and muses!
This drawing is of a gorgeous dog named Major. He is a mastiff cross, and is a guardian angel for his family. He’s a bulky but beautiful bruiser- a pleasure to draw!
