Judas the Black Lab
This is a commission I finished just tonight. I've been working on it for three days and I pronounce it finished. By far, this is my favorite pet portrait I've completed. My goal for each piece of art is to feel like I've grown as an artist in some way or another. I'm pushing to make the little bits of change I do, become visible in each piece I create. Basically, I want each piece to look better than the last.
Judas, unfortunately has cancer and his owner has had to make the tough choice to put him to sleep. She wanted a nice picture to remember him by. I thought the photo I worked from would be perfect and she agreed.
