A Dog called Baxter!

Here are some WIP drawings on a characterful dog I just produced for a valentines present! The starting out I find difficult, as I only see part of the dog in front of me and I quickly want it to look right!

Then, once I have him all in, in this case I started with black, I can add in the other colours. I am working in coloured pencil here, and I make them very sharp with a blade! This is inportant for areas around the eyes and where fine hairs show up ...

Finally he is done, I can see from his eyes that he has collie in him!
