Bichon Frise dog pencil portrait




One of my favorite portraits of this season, a Bichon Frise (non-traditional Bichon haircut though!)... I combined two photos of the dog to create this pencil portrait.

According to my client, his dog is always licking his nose, so that's why he's licking his nose. The client asked if there was something I could do to make the portrait more "Christmassy." It started with the box, then I had the ribbon idea, then I wanted the ornament with the year on it, so that meant putting the tree in. I get an idea and then I just run with it.

I wish more of the fur detail could show up, but the camera can't pick all of that up.
