The Dog Pencil Pet Portrait in Pencil

The photos of Django below show the dog portrait completed prior to packing and sending the drawing to Andy ready to give as a special surprise gift. You can see that the portrait is one of my larger sizes as my pencils look smaller in the photos below compared to some of my smaller drawings in my gallery.

About the Dog Portrait Commission of Django

Reference Photo

Andy contacted me via email in 2017 to ask if I would be able to create a portrait of his friends dog a s a surprise present for her.

Andy had a couple of average snaps of Django but didn’t have any completely suitable to draw from so Andy endeavoured to take new photos of Django with his digital camera.

The photo shoot was a success and you can see the photo we all chose to work from on the left. He is an absolutely stunning dog and I thorough enjoyed drawing him.

Andy chose to have the portrait drawn at 18 x 14 size which was a good size for the breed of dog. Andy wanted to give the portrait to his friend unframed so that she could choose the exact type of frame to match her home decor. Andy emailed me when he saw the finished drawing which you can read below....
