Lyriq, the Tibetan Terrier

Ah, how I thought a long haired black dog would be a piece of cake! This is such a beautiful beast, but one has no clue exactly how many shades of black there are in a black dog. 9x12"

very commendable - I LOATHE drawing black dogs. Especially when you get a photo taken with a flash GGRRRRR. But this one is lovely!!

Any portrait from a flash photo is horrible. I try to coach my clients before that stage to work hard on getting a lot of different reference so I can piece together the best shots. And work a lot with the computer to see the unseeable!
