German Shepherd Portrait Update: The Home Stretch!

Just a quick update on this guy – I’m roughly 60% of the way through now. Got all of my base colours down minus the metal on the collar. Now that I know where all the markings and shadows need to go it’s just adding detail everywhere and fleshing out all the fur. 🙂

I’m not really sure how many hours I’ve spent on this piece – to be honest I lost count! But just to give you a rough idea, the gums and teeth alone took me a little over 2 hours to do last night.

I am currently open for pet portrait commissions and have 2 slots open for Christmas. Email me at or check out the contact me page to order!
