Thank you for this great step by step that's ended with such wonderful results. I am curious the pastel work shows the dog at eye level but your photo seems to have been shot from a standing position. I'm wondering why you didn't shoot from eye level? In any case it's a great, and useful tutorial, and the dog is beautiful. The commissioner should be very very pleased.

Randy> Thank you! :D I'm pleased that you like my work.

Paula> Sorry I haven't been on so much latley, been so buisy. Thanks for you kind words and claps. ;)

TJ> Yes I'm in a standing position because the dog wouldn't stay put if I sat down in it's level, every time I did that, it wanted to play and came running to me. :) hehe, so that's why. Thanks for you kind words.

Leigh > I'm glad you like it. hm...maybe I should translate the other tutorial I have about the making of Harry Potter on green velour paper with pastels? What do you think.

DORTE,

You are the answer to my prayers. I had promised to get my sisters dog completed for Christmas and have put it off. I will work on it the next few days. My first attempt I blew as I touched up with softies.

This is just marvelous, everything. Getting the soul of the picture by doing the eyes first, the details in the nose, the different stroke techniques for the fur, and your secret weapon-Using violet to get the sheen in the the coat of fur.

Thankyou for taking the time to lay this out step by step. You are an angel:angel:

Hej !

Thank you for the elucidating tutorial !
I have some velour but have used it only once for an animal painting.
I've been using it more for landscapes :-)

Kind regards,

You made that look so easy and I know it cannot be... but because you make it look so easy I think I may just try to do it! This dog looks so much like mine that I may have a head start, no pun intended!

So kind of you to share your talent, thanks!

What a wonderful tutorial! I have the pastel pencils and the velour...what I didn't have was the nerve to try and put them together! Now I've seen your wonderful tutorial I am going to have a go!

Thank you!
