Dobe - WIP

Hello all,

Haven't been around much because I haven't been drawing all that much.

I have had such an awful week - I wrecked my car on Wednesday and ended up with whiplash and then on Friday, my uncle died of cancer so I decided that I wanted to create something nice to try and bring me out of my blue funk.

So, here's my Dobe...he's red, so the colors are a bit lighter.



and the reference photo:


It's drawn on Bristol Smooth with Berol Turquoise Pencils, 6B & HB.

Let me know if something looks off

Re: Dobe - WIP

This is looking wonderful so far. I will be following this one.
I used to have a red,and a fawn dobie. The red has passed away.and the fawn lives with my sister now due to my husbands allergies . I love dobermas. So smart.

Dobes are such beautiful dogs. I love the sleek athletic looking dogs...they are some of my favorites to look at! Heather...I've heard the fawns (Isabellas) and blues have more skin problems. Did yours? I love the blues...so striking to look at IMO.

Hi Cathy,

My fawn has no health problems at all, and she is 10 years old this year. I had heard that they are sensitive when I got her, but I never experienced anything.(She is my tinyhead,btw. )
I know a huge blue doberman who has the worst skin. He always looks a little dusty and has a smell to him. Sweet big guy,always wants to snuggle.

Heather

This is going to look really good! Any form of art can help to relax the mind, especially when times have been a little difficult recently.

Hi there
This is going to be lovely....wonderful dogs.

When you're drawing the eyes take a long look at the entire landscape I can see in your photo, in each eye....it's one of the things i love about animals pictured outside......

Sorry to hear you're having a funky time of it. I hope the drawing has helped. It's going to be a good one!

A little progress :)

Worked on my drawing for a bit tonight too.



It's kind of weird - I do something that I think is TOO dark but when I do the areas around it, it seems to come out pretty well.

Hmmm...maybe I'm afraid of the 'dark'?

More Dobe

Back to work on my drawing...a well-needed relaxation technique, I've decided

Added more shading to the neck area tonight...working my way back up now.

(((((Pam)))))
Sorry you have had such a bad week

Your drawing has progressed wonderfully.
Already I can see a personality emerging.

Thanks Leaflin

I guess I can say that the worst is over now - my uncle's service was over the weekend and Monday, I just crashed. I was completely exhausted - mentally and physically. I spent a good portion of yesterday just trying to rest and relax. I am feeling a bit better today though...I think it's the chocolate chip-peanut butter cookies

I'm glad I started this drawing - it's been a really good self-esteem boost for me. I like to draw but it's getting started that is really hard for me. It's like I think to myself, if I don't start it, I can't fail at it. *shrugs*

In any case, I'm glad you like it I'm still working on it right now so I'll probably post another update a bit later.

Pam

One last update for the night:



Maybe not the best place for me to stop - I'm not completely satisfied with how the upper left side of his head looks but maybe when I finish the ear, I'll like it better

Off to walk the dogs and go to bed
