Here is HOKU, a 6 mo. old Havanese.  He's on the far left of his UNBELIEVABLE FAMILY PORTRAIT I just posted.  He looked like a fur ball before he went to the groomer and got a 'Baby cut'!  Can't imagine drawing all that fur!   :sweat:

I'm so excited for you to draw all these cuties Liz! What an incentive to start the dog drawing class. I purchased it also - will probably take a look at it tomorrow. Purchased a few other things and have no idea what my next project is yet  :)  Have a great week!

Retta sent me this question :

Hi Nolan;
I'm enjoying watching the video to get the 'hang' of it and the neat technique you are using. I'm curious tho, seeing you scratching all the graphite, do you sharpen all of your pencils in a chisel shape, or just the HB?  I would think about two on the go would do….seeins how fast the scraping goes. Very interesting.

I'm going to really try, Denise!  I know I can't do people so I should try animals.  If they don't come out looking right, I won't feel as bad as I know they won't feel bad, either!  ::)

ha ha, I know what you mean! I just finished my "African Man" wc lesson and truly feel bad for the African Man even though I don't even know him! LOL
 
I did not do him justice as he seems to be such a wise and gentle man from the photo. I like your idea of sticking to animals!

I want to finish Nolan's dog first. I have the photo printed and as soon as I get a few hours break I will get started on it. It may take me a while so don't hold your breath please ....  :o    :faint:
Cheers, Val

My daughter said that the dog breeder's children were propping up the dogs, but I can't see them in the photo!  It is still an amazing photo, though! 


And she said the woman would like to have a print or painting, unless of course whatever is produced is altered to be unrecognized from the original.  I think Dennis posted something about using someone's photograph... Maybe check on this again.

You can use someone elses photo as long as you have their permission.
