So this was my challenge piece for Tonalea. She wanted a pitbull and sent me some pictures of her dog Toby. I used those and combined them with a reference I found on my own to give her this. I used his markings, which was sort of difficult to translate over, but it was fun. I'm really happy with this piece. Its 8x10.




Might I add that Patrick apparently did not find my signature because it wasn't hidden at all, except for by me within the piece! Ha Haa!

Nice expression. Yours and Patrick's were the only two I got right :)

This was one I actually guessed right. But I'm not telling why just incase we do this one again.

Not only did she get the subject that she wanted, but also got a personalized pet portait. Awesome!!

Thank you so much everyone. I'm really excited for all the positive response on making it as personal as I did. Thank you again! It was a fun a piece to do.

Susan, what a treasure for Tonalea. She must be estatic with it. Beautiful eyes. Ineresting positioning.
