Great job, he is cute and lifelike.
On my computer, it's hard to see what medium you used. Was it color pencils? chalks?

Excellent use of acrylic paints. You manage to give some softness to the whole painting which is perfect for a remembrance portrait.

This is a really special piece. You captured the pups sweet gaze just perfectly. I'm sure the owner cherishes it.

you made the eyes even more expressive than in the photo. They are looking up just a tad more. What an awesome interpretation!  You are very skilled at what you do. Great job!!!
