Hello everyone!

Here is a portrait of my dog, Koopa, that I just finished. It's in greyscale Tombo Dual markers on 9x12 Fabriano Studio CP Watercolour paper. I got those last week and I really enjoy working with them so far!

Here is my reference picture of Koopa:

And here is my drawing:


Let me know what you think!

Really lovely! Just watch out for hard edges.

Very recognizable.

Nice work! I like the reference pic and you've definitely caught his expression. :)

Well done As you asked for critics I ll say the upper lip below the nose is a bit narrowit can be fixed

You do a remarkable job with those markers and I love your dog. You asked for crits and I feel the eye is too large and too dark.. Koopa has such beautiful dark honey colour in her eyes. Otherwise great.

Thank you everyone for the nice comments and for the critiques!

Chammi, I completely know what you mean, I also thought the eye was not right after looking at it again. I'll be aware of that next time :)

Robert, I think you're right, I'll try to rework that bit and post an update.

Christel, could you please just explain what you mean exactly by hard edges? I'm not certain I understand.
