More from WDE…. first a couple of rough sketches… there were three separate ref pics of dogs, after sketching two of them I decided to combine all three into a digital painting, all were done freehand.
Sketch one… using pencil and inktense wash
Sketch two……. Same again pencil and inktense wash.
The combined digital painting of the three dogs, no photo manipulation… painted in Painter X using the charcoal and pastel tools plus blenders with some textures added for the background.
