Charlie by AmandaDrage Charlie by AmandaDrage
8x10" portrait of my parents' late dog. Derwent Drawing soft coloured pencils and pastel on velour paper. Reference photo was my own.

I'm giving this to my mum on Sunday as a gift. I think there might be a tear or two. ;) He was her baby.

I'm open for 8x10" pet portrait commissions. Four slots left at the reduced rate of 65 not including shipping. Drop me a note if you'd like one!

Sorry for the inactivity, I have a valid reason though... I've been ploughing through my artistic to-do list. The Commissions Fairy has decided to smile on me this year, only modestly but it is a smile nonetheless... so I'm busy-busy right now!

Wow, this is amazing! I admire the fur structure. How did you manage to make it so realistic and detailed with colored pencils? :drool: Lately, I was thinking about buying some colored pencils, too, and this is a great motivation. Now I wonder, though, whether I should be saving some money for the pencils or for a commission from you :). I'm sure our chihuahua would look great in your style :aww:

Thank you so much :) I have no idea :XD: it just seems to be a good combination! The fur was a little tricky on this one, though. It doesn't help that I don't seem to have a good natural steely-grey blue.
Lol, well I can recommend either :lol: haha! I can say the Derwent Drawing soft pencils are really nice, and are great for sketching too!

You're very welcome :) It does seem pretty difficult.

Great, thanks for the recommendation :D Some time later, I'll go to an art shop to try out different pencils. I read a good critique of this Derwents, so I'll pay a special attention to them :aww:
