Great start! You're already capturing the light.

Ah, wonderful start! The ref seem to be a bit tricky, but your drawing don't seem to suffer by that...love the light too!

It's not the greatest ref, but it's got a potential for awesome lighting! I think you're going to do well with this one.

Having a chocolate labrador myself I know that getting them to stay still long enough for the camera to focus is a job in itself!
Your image is great, you have captured the life in the Lab already.

Oh goodness this is coming along beautifully. Keep it up!
I agree with Craig that made me laugh because it is a chore. I have a year old Black Labrador and it is a hassle, and even tougher is to get him to keep his tongue in his mouth, ha.

Oh mygoodness this is off to a magnificent start. I am pulling up a chair to watch you work.

oh my goodness is exactly what I said when I saw your drawing--just like so many others. Just fabulous.

I couldn't find my thread! I hope you didn't fall off your chair when you fell asleep Jody007!
Anyway, I finished the commission and sent the client a scan - they are really pleased with it, so hopefully (as is usually the case) they will be even happier when they see it in real! I know there is a slight difference in pupil size, which I have altered, but not re-scanned yet...

No wonder they are happy with it

You pulled out lots of nice values from that less than perfect ref. They really add depth to that pretty smile. good job! I always get stuck on the lights and mediums. Glad your client liked it too!
