Thanks for the demo! It's nice to see how you got the background all finished before you started on the dog.

Phenomenal. I love the progression... he just comes out of the paper and visits with you! Barb

PS: I might be wrong but I think the dog is smiling too!

Re: Portrait of Chloe WIP

Mark, Chloe is sharp! This would make an excellent animation, too, with a bit of photo resizing.

Do you like using the Pastelmat as much as I do? It's turning into one of my favorite grounds.

Re: Portrait of Chloe WIP

wow, this is beautiful! It's nice to see how Chloe comes forward, I think overlapping the background colour and then painting her made a difference. Amazing eyes! Did you uses pencils as well?
