This my friends dog  I took the picture a few years ago. He has since died.
I traced the outline (just couldn't get it right) and freehand in the bodywork.

Pretty good for a beginner's attempt at a dog, Bill. 

The more we try, the better we get.

However it got here, it is right where it belongs!  O0

Excellent attempt, nothing wrong with using a traced outline. It is just an outline until you bring it to life.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

Val, right, Bill.  Encourager section is for work that is not part of a LESSON.

You did it right! And I ENCOURAGE you to do it again.
