Hello Dave.
Yes I can do that.
I have two ahead of you so if you weren't
crunched for time that would be better.
I'm assuming you can supply a first-rate reference photo.

Oh, and thanks, he's a she.

Did I comment on this one before? I cant remember, beautiful piece as always tho, love the blank dark, really contrasting with the subtle shades of grey. You always have such a delightful hand with detail in the hair, nose and eyes!

You did comment earlier, and were just as sweet and
complimentary then as now. :) Thank you Jonathan.
I have a couple more it looks like, one proper-looking
hound-ish dog with short hair, and another.....dust mop type of thing.

This is so real, so full of life - awesome.
The eyes nearly moving, the nose is wet and the little varmint is about a second before he jumps away ....
Though it is so calm and peaceful .. a really impressing work.

As always: Sounds to me like < click me >

hi Kate this is Andy [borrowing gregs page]. The original has arrived ,been framed and has pride of place on the stairwell.
Thankyou so much for your wonderfull work. The likeness is trully amazing ,not just physically, but that knowing [I'm such a wise little imp]look.It portrays her perfectly .[ You'd really have to meet her to know how well]. From Ali and myself ,THANKYOU so very much .we can't imagine how much work you put in to achieve such results ,it is greatly appreciated.and for those who'd like to know ,she's maltese x poodle with a dash of ausie terrier and weighs nearly 4 k [8 lbs]wringing wet after a large meal, and don't be fooled by the cute fluffy look . She reckons she's all terrier and you'd better believe it.

Hi Andy, I'm delighted you're so well-pleased and thanks so much for your kind words.
As I've said little dogs aren't usually the thing for me but Kinna's sweet face with
its lively expression won me over in short order. She's lucky to have found a home
where she is treasured.
You do see Australian terriers here, along with Aussie shepherds and heelers, now and then.
Spunky and handsome little dogs.
I've never come across a kelpie, though I imagine there are some around. Terriers are
unique rough-and-tumble personalities for sure.
My work does proceed at glacial speed because there's no blending involved, everything's
built up from line, I just can't bring myself to smear the graphite.
Greg sent me a photo of Kinna framed, quite a nice finish I think. Thank you again. :)

I like them with less rather than more fur myself, as a former dog groomer.

absolutley mind blowing sock exploding great! Really like how you do hair, you have your own way of doing it, it looks artistic. As always you get the personality of the animal smack on the nail, keep up the good work!

Sock exploding is a concept that shall stay with me long and long.
I wouldn't mind keeping up the good work on something without so much fur next time...
(and yet when I do skin I find myself thinking fur is certainly easier.)
Thank you Jonathan, always something lovely to say. :)

I do go way too long between drawings---if I don't start up
