Wordless Wednesday – Drawing Mos the Dog

This is my second art project from my May 29th post, Thunderous Pet Portraits. I finished drawing Deuce the cat last week. And yesterday I finished drawing Mos the dog. Below are photos from my work in progress. I also filmed myself drawing this. I had hoped to make a fast-forward video of my work in progress, but I have not figured out how to use my video editor yet. Anyway, enjoy the photos for now.

Step 4: Start coloring in the face.

Step 5: More of the face is colored in. This gives me an idea of colors and shading.

Drawing Mos Step 6

Step 6: I have added more color and smoothed out the pastels on Mos’ face.

The Final Drawing of Mos the Dog

The completed work of Mos the dog. Pastels by Dawn Ross, June 25th, 2013.

What do you think of Mos? He’s adorable, right? He is my aunt’s dog. She adopted him from the humane society some years ago.

Perhaps in the next couple of weeks, I will complete the third drawing from the sketches I showed you on the Thunderous Pet Portraits post. Keep checking in!
