Pet Portrait: Zelda

zelda smallOnce upon a time in the land of Hyrule there was a princess named Zelda.  Like another famous video game character, Peach, she has a habit of getting into trouble.  Luckily, no matter what happens, Link is always there for her.  In my mind I like to pretend that this Shiba Inu is living up to this fantasy story in her own way.  And they all lived happily ever after.

Pet Portrait: Rascal

RascalWith a proud pose like this, I don’t know if I can accept that Rascal has been appropriately named.  Who knows, he could be a mischievous little bugger when the camera is put away.  Must be the black lab side of the Labrador/German Shepherd mix (if this is, in fact, what he is. It’s up for debate). Continue reading

Pet Portrait: Ahsoka

Ahsoka SmallYes, that is a weird name for a dog.  But what would you expect from a couple that had lightsabers as part of their reception introduction as a married couple?  Not that I’m judging; I want a lightsaber… Continue reading

Pet Portrait: Jack

Jack SmallFor my last commissioned portrait before Christmas, I got to spend some time looking at this precious Mountain Cur (a breed of dog I hadn’t even heard of until today) rescued from the side of the road after being hit by a car. I kind of want to steal him. Continue reading

Pet Portrait: Diesel and Roxy

boxers smallIn the question of boxers or briefs, I choose boxers. Eh heh heh… No I will not apologize for that joke! I stayed up until 7AM to finish this drawing so that was incredibly hilarious in my head and I regret nothing! Continue reading

Children’s Portrait: Autumn

AutumnJust like her brother Braylon, Autumn is another adorable kid with light blonde hair. Well jokes on you, kids! Those locks are turning brown before you know it! Live it up while you can! (I might still hold a little resentment towards my hair for going through this process…) Continue reading

Pet Portrait: Zeus

Zeus SmallMeet Zeus, an Anatolian Shepherd (which I’d never heard of before) that hopefully didn’t frivolously father as many children as the Greek god he is named after, though I would be OK with it slightly more so if one child inspired a Disney movie.  Who put the glad in gladiator?  Hercules! Continue reading

Children’s Portrait: Braylon

Braylon SmallBefore starting this drawing of Braylon I made a joke that it has been a while since I’ve drawn a child that wasn’t furry, maybe hinting at a little worry about dealing with skin tones, but I’d like to think I was worrying for nothing. Continue reading

Pet Portrait: Dexter

DexterMeet Dexter, a 6 month old (as of yesterday!) Lab / Border Collie mix.  I tried to convince my friend that with Halloween coming up it would be precious to dress him up in a smock like Showtime’s Dexter, scalpel and all, but she was not convinced this would make a decent portrait.  Maybe next time… Continue reading
