Barney is one of a series of dogs I drew in graphite for one of my veterinary clients. I see Barney on and off in the clinic so I knew him fairly well. This made drawing Barney a little easier however the owner wanted me to use a combination of of the two photos above so we had the fluffy coat but could also see the eyes. Fortunately the photos were taken roughly from the same angle. I did have to do a little tweaking on the computer first, then I checked in with Barney's owner to make sure we still had his face shape. Once that was done the easy part was the artwork.
