Pet Drawings – Scruffy

Scruffy looks like a spunky little guy…and maybe a bit of troublemaker with a mischievous glint in his eye.

Medium: colore pencil
Size: 8″ x 10″

Here are some earlier stages of the drawing:

Scruffy looks like he’s listening intently to be called. I’ll keep the background simple but interesting to make Scruffy pop right out of it.

The beginning of the drawing! He looks so inquisitive! I can't wait to really dig into this one!

You make it sound easy, but "Scruffy" is one of the most professionally skillful portraits (of an animal or a person) I've ever seen! You have an incredible technique and ability with colored pencils. All the color and lines you have in the piece work together so beautifully. He's so beautifully orchestrated and alive. Molly will be enjoying this original work for years to come.
