DALMATION PENCIL PORTRAIT DRAWINGS – CAPTURING THEIR PERSONALITY
When ordering a Dalamation pencil portrait you want to be sure that the artwork will capture your Dalmations individual characteristics and unique personality. As with all my artwork commissions I capture the finest of details by blowing up my photographic reference 300%-400% actual size. This results in a stunning drawing that is photorealistic, that more often that not brings tears of joy to my customers eyes.
The photographic reference is key when drawing a pet pencil drawing, I usually ask for 3-5 photographs to work from. This gives me a broad spectrum of different poses and colourations in order to get the colour and scale of your dog perfect.
Not sure if your photo’s are good enough quality for me to work from? No problem, give me a call or drop me an email, I will happily let you know if your reference is good enough. If they are not quite up to the mark I can advise you on the best way to achieve great photo reference that I can work from. Take a look at my photo guide page on my site, it may help you when taking your photos.
The coat of a Dalmation is very different to most breeds, usually short, fine, and very dense. This makes for the perfect subject to draw, their coats sit tight to there frame and give an exacting shape to their body form, reflecting their stature and reflect their strength.
