Ok, this is I think the fourth pet portrait I have done. Still collecting ones of friends and family members pets to get a portfolio of sorts together so I can start marketing them for real.



This is my brother-in-laws dog Baxter. Baxter lives hundreds of miles away, and I have new actually met him, so hopefully I captured his look OK. Here is the reference photo, which is in sepia, not his actual coat color. he is actually that red/orangish color:


critiques appreciated!! am I good enough to actually bother trying to commission them?

I love it!  Really looks like Baxter, but also looks artistically interesting.  Yeah, I think you're good enough!

I *love* the style and the texture on this!  I'd be glad to have a portrait of my dog in this style.
Very nice!

I've admired all your posts.  You seem to really capture the look on the pets' faces w/o doing a photo-like portrait.  I think A LOT of pet lovers will be all over your work.

I was just thinking of how long it would take me to make enough money to commision a portrait of my cat.
So let's just say it's fabulous.
