FRENCH BULLDOGS – A HISTORIC COMPANION

The French Bulldog or now more commonly know as the ‘Frenchie’ is a dog breed that goes back to the 1800’s where it was recognised more as a companion dog. The Frenchie was originally created in England to be a smaller version of the Bulldog, often seen accompanying English Lacemakers to France where they got the name of the ‘Frenchie’.

In addition to being a well known travel companion, they were also well recognised as very effective ratters. That said, today they are more well known as great family dogs and with them being a true pedigree breed are often used as show dogs.

As mentioned they are one of the smaller breeds of the dog world, but unlike a lot of other small dog breeds, the Frenchie is a very strong, well built little powerhouse.

FRENCH BULLDOG PENCIL PET PORTRAIT DRAWINGS – REFLECTING THEIR STRENGTH & STATURE

Capturing the stature, grace and cheeky character of your French Bulldog is my entire focus when I undertake your personalised dog drawing. As with all my drawings I work to a photorealistic finish that reflects every detail of the subjects characteristics, making for a truly memorable piece of artwork.

The reference I use when doing your pet drawing is the most important part, I usually work of 3-4 photos in order to get a global understanding of your dogs true colour and various characteristics. If you need assistance or advice on your reference please feel free to get in touch I will happily talk things over with you. I have put together a photo guide page that may help you when taking any photos for this purpose.

Capturing the strength and muscular physique normally associated with a French bull dog is easier that some of the more long haired breeds. Their short hair is generally quite tight to their frame and highlights every curve very well. As the fur of a dog in generally the majority of the work within a dog drawing, the shorter hair breeds can take a little less time to complete and more detail tonal shape detail of the animals frame can also be captured.

FRENCH BULLDOG PENCIL PORTRAIT DRAWINGS – THE BEST POSE

 

HEAD PORTRAIT

A head portrait of your Frenchie can make for an excellent dog drawing, most Frenchies character is highlighted well in their facial expression. The details of their big eyes and squashed little faces can add a really cute slant to your dog portrait.

FULL BODY SHOT

A full body drawing of your french bulldog will show of its best characteristics; its strength power and stature, highlighted by its well defined muscle structure. A lot of people opt for a full body drawing of their dog in a home environment, maybe sleeping on its bed or sat on its owner lap. Like most dog owners you probably have lots of photos of your furry friend that you have always wanted a drawing of, whatever the pose of your Frenchie capturing its key characteristics is what I aim to achieve.

MOVEMENT SHOT

Your timing will need to be quite accurate in order to catch a movement shot of your French Bulldog. As they can be quite speedy little dogs, darting from point to point, you may need to take quite a lot of shots in order to capture just the right photo. It may be the fact you have 3-4 photos you have taken, that capture different aspects of your dog you’d like combining into your drawing. Thats perfect, as with most of my commissions the owners very rarely have everything they want in the one photo.
