This is Milord, a rough collie. Isn't he handsome? This is a commission for *Maeix2
of her mother's dog.
I had a tough time bringing this sketch to life. With so much hair, it was hard to get the proportions correct. I would make a sketch, scan it in and drop the background, then lay the lines over the photo to see where I was off and how badly. I had to do that twice before it was good. It was a bit tricky getting the thick white hair to look realistic with the dark, but I am happy with how it came out. And I love his eyes. You probably can't see it, but there's a pretty color change there.
And don't ask about the glowy circle in the background. I don't know exactly how that came to be, but I kinda like how it all came out.
