Dog Portrait

I've been pretty busy lately with illustration work from private clients. A lot of that has been family and pet portraits.
Here's a dog portrait I recently completed including the four basic stages of one of my illustrations:
1. pencil sketch
2. inked drawing
3. flat colors
4. final colors
