Pencil Portrait of a Shelter Dog 2:365

Dog at Lehigh County Humane Society

Day two of my one a day resolution: Say hello to Jasmine. When I saw her picture, she was a guest at the Lehigh County Humane Society in Allentown, PA. She likely still is. Her photo struck me. She has sweet, soft eyes. She looks like a dog who needs a friend and would be a good friend. I tried to capture that feeling with this quick sketch. When I draw or paint dogs, I try to convey their personality through their eyes and their muzzle. I think if you can capture those areas of their face, you can tell their story. The rest is just structure.
