Done as part of a practice session with poses of 10 minutes in length.


So cute! I just can't resist a picture of a puppy. :)

I think your use of brown on brown here is very effective. It gives the image a soft, cosy atmosphere and also allows the white highlights to jump out even more.

In the theme of contrast, maybe it would work to add in some more very deep areas of shade in dark brown ink, to help balance out the white. I think that broadening the range of value would really complete the piece for me.

I love how you have captured the expression through the shine of the eyes and the slight head tilt. Adding those extra details to the face really brings the composition together and drew my eye straight into the face area.

You are really good at this! Keep it up!

Hey, Hornet, did you miss me? Say, nice job on your dog study. Very good!

If I was to give you a totally honest critique, it would be the it looks or seems a bit too jagged to me. Why don't you please loosen up your lines for your dogs, with 5 minutes of 30 second animal sketches? (10)

The reason why is because, your dog doodles will have a completely gestural look and feel to 'em.

You know, there are plenty of animal drawing tutorials here, and on YouTube and on Books and PDFs, too. Good luck to you.
