Graphite Dog Portrait of a Weimaraner WIP5

Graphite Dog Portrait of a Weimaraner The dark and light tones are starting to even out and the texture has added more depth to the dog's face.

The green on the side is tape, in case you were wondering. If I use a smaller size paper such as this where the portrait fills the entire paper, I use low tack painter's tape on the sides of the paper to act as handles. The oil from a misplaced finger is almost impossible to remove and there is nothing worse than spending hours upon hours on a portrait only to discover a misplaced fingerprint near the end!

I'm partial to dogs but the kitten photo is adorable. I mostly do art from photos but of a much different kind. I really like your style though. The babies feet are too sweet. I can see that one being sent to loved ones to announce a new birth. That one is heart warming as well as spectacular.
