Wordless Wednesday – Deuce the Cat is Done

June 19, 2013

Remember the sketches I did a few weeks ago? Well, I’ve finished the final art work of one of them. Check out Deuce!

Photo Deuce the Cat

This is a photo of Deuce the cat.

Deuce the Cat Two

The final sketch of Deuce.

Deuce the Cat Traced Sketch

First, I trace my sketch onto pastel art paper and do the background.

Duece Cat Eyes in Pastel

Next, I do my most favorite part – the eyes! I have also included in the photo the colors of pastel pencils that I used to color the eyes.

Deuce the Cat Nose

Next is the nose. I have included the colors of pencils I used for the nose in this picture.

Duece the Cat Art 1

Then I start working on the cat’s body. I didn’t picture the pencils here but I used black, dark blue, light blue, grey, and white pencils.

Duece the Cat Art 2

The last part I need to work on is Deuce’s head. As you can see, I first did the white parts of his face. They I lay the background color, which is black.

Deuce the Cat Art 3

Finished! Deuce the cat has been completed in pastel pencils by Dawn Ross on June 18th, 2013.

Wordless Wednesday – Thunderous Pet Portraits

May 29, 2013

I currently have three pet portraits going. Two are commission works and the other is one I asked to do because the photo was so inspiring. If you follow the dog blog of a three Chesapeake Bay Retrievers named after weather terminology and a large ship, then you know 2BrownDawgs.com. Go check out their site, then you will see why I was inspired to draw the following sketches:

Thunder Sketch One

Preliminary sketch of Thunder, the Chesapeake Bay Retriever.

Thunder Sketch Two

My final sketch of Thunder before attempting to draw in color. (Can you hear AC/DCs song Thunderstruck playing in the background?)

Now check out the two commission pet portraits I am working on:

Photo Deuce the Cat

This is a photo of Deuce the cat.

Deuce Sketch One

The photo was at an angle I wasn’t happy with so I adjusted the angle and drew Deuce the cat from a more face-to-face angle.

Deuce the Cat Two

The final sketch of Deuce is complete. I may need more photos to get the cat stripes right when I draw this in color.

Photo of Dog Mos 2

This is a photo of Mos, a rescued dog with a sweet face.

Mos Sketch One

The preliminary sketch of Mos.

Final Mos Sketch.

This is the almost final sketch of Mos. I have another photo of Mos I can use to draw the ears better.
