Moto and Candy portrait in progress 10

Updated: Aug 17

Now all of the “red” areas of Moto’s head (red and rust Doberman) are finished, and I have worked my way down and around the left side of his muzzle/upper lip.

Nose and chin finished, and I’m working my way around to the right side of his muzzle. The lip and muzzle on that side are outlined and I’m now putting in those shaded areas of his upper jaw area on the right cheek.

I dread muzzles because those rows of little dimples where the whiskers come out are tricky…easy to overdo and make them ugly. But they have to be there because a totally smooth muzzle would look weird. A balancing act.


Working in the studio today. Candy and Moto are starting to look out of the portrait at me.

This is how the whole portrait looks now:
