When I see a photo of someone’s pet, I don’t just look at it as a nice picture of an animal. I see a beloved family member, who has a character and personality all its own. Every pet I have owned was certainly unique and just like with my kids, I wouldn’t want them alike, either! Some pets are clearly very serious in their expressions and some have a quizzical look about them. Some look like they are up to something or are planning to be up to something!
I take great care to capture those expressions in my drawings, which make them become “your” pet.
I use only professional grade Prismacolor Colored Pencils and Strathmore 500 Series Bristol Vellum paper, which allow me to create realism in my drawings.
