Boxer Dog Completed



Boxer Dog finally finished, except for the usual tweaking in a couple of days time, drawing is 9x9 inches on Mellotex paper...


25/5/11 Well here is the drawing after a lot of tweaking, I wasnt happy with the chest area, so re-drew all of it and even though this is not perfect it looks more realistic in my eyes...what do you think?

fabulous portrait Grahame! I think it was a daring decision to rework the neck that has paid off perfectly- it has a more 'rugged' realistic look, wonderful! Jules

Grahame Butler said...

Thanks Jules, still not 100% happy with the neck, but you can only do so many re works....
