This one is from a photo, drawn with a charcoal pencil. I quite like this one.
These aren't so good, but I DID draw them from life quite quickly which I think is harder than drawing from a photo. Also, they are pencil, and I think it's harder to get nice results with pencil than charcoal because the contrast isn't so good.
Mollydog snoozes in pencil. I quite like this one, was trying for something a bit more stylised.
Oh dear. It's a long time since I drew anything in pen and ink, and I don't think I was ever much good at it. This was a reasonable pencil sketch until I started to ink it, then it all went horribly wrong...
Having done all these hounds, I thought I'd try a Welsh dragonhound hybrid. It sort of works (possibly because it's in charcoal so has an advantage...? though I do wonder if the wings should be bigger really )
