I have completed the illustration for the dog - I wanted to keep the feeling friendly, warm and 'loyal'.
Compelling composition and perspective is key with an animal in action.
The original photo had great focal depth, I just didn't want to keep as much distortion, so I worked certain areas of the photo, such as lessening the perspecive on the ears.
Tone and texture - key for any animal drawing because of all the fur, and smooth areas. Because I intended the final piece to be coloured and on a dark background, I worked the drawing more with line than blending, using the tortillion.
This drawing style is to be used on on animal food labels, so I wanted to make sure it was a style I could keep 'constant. Below is a work in progress.
