Okay so awhile back I posted this:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=357250.msg4184450#msg4184450

Which was my practice piece before I did the ones I'm about to show you all!
My MIL and FIL LOVED them! Funny story right when I finished the last doggie portrait I got a txt from my BIL telling me my MIL got another dog! I just couldn't believe it! So when I gave her these I told her she'll have to get me a pic of the new puppy Scout so I can draw him as well. Ever since she met me she's been wanting me to do these portraits and I was super excited when I finished them this summer. It was so hard to wait until Christmas to give them to her and even harder to wait until now to share them with you all!!

Okay so first here are the original photos: The top is Tia the middle is Gus and the bottom is Koda



Now the portraits:

Tia:


Gus:


Koda:


They are done in colored pencil on bristol board.

Thanks for looking!!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

These are so fantastic. You did a wonderful job capturing their personalites and brightness.

As a dachshund owner myself, I know that I would be over the moon to receive something as special as this.

Great job!!

Really nice portraits. I especially like the depiction of the glossiness of the fur. I'm sure these will be treasured gifts.
