GERMAN SHEPHERD PENCIL PORTRAIT DRAWINGS – CREATING VISUAL IMPACT

The main thing you want when commissioning a dog drawing is to have a piece of artwork that captures your dogs true character, reflecting its individual looks and personality. I work to meticulous detail, capturing every crease, hair and shade of your german shepherd to create a stunning photo realistic Pencil pet portrait that exceeds your expectation.

For every pet drawing I undertake I normally work from 2-3 photos, these can be digital copies or actual prints. If you can supply more than three then perfect, the more the merrier, as each one will give a slightly different perspective on your german shepherd in terms of looks, colouring and personality.

The ideal scenario to take photos of your german shepherd is outdoors in natural daylight, as photographs taken indoors usually capture additional light sources, from things such as synthetic lighting or reflections off furniture and surroundings. Please see my photo guide as it may help you to capture a great photo of your german shepherd.

The natural sheen and glossy coats on german shepherd dogs is a huge factor in the overall look of your pet portrait. The way I Capture every tone of black, tan and deep shades of brown gives great depth and visual impact to the finished artwork.

GERMAN SHEPHERD PENCIL PORTRAIT DRAWINGS – CHOOSING THE RIGHT POSE

HEAD SHOT

A beautifully captured head portrait of a german shepherd is amongst my most requested types of dog portraits. As the portrait simply shows the facial expression of the beautiful animal close up, displaying wonderfully its colour, unique expression and individual character.

FULL BODY SHOT

A full body shot is a great style to choose for your pet pencil portrait, capturing its entire body in fine pencil detail. In days of old this type of pet portrait used to be the favoured choice. A dog sat forward, looking powerful, normally with a dramatic backdrop of a beautiful scene or grand manor. Nowadays with the help of digital cameras and smartphones, the variety of full body shot you can capture for your pet portrait is huge. Maybe you would like a pet drawing of your german shepherd sat on its favourite mat or rug, or even snuggling in front of the fire, the choice is yours. Feel free to give me a call I will be happy to chat over any ideas you may have for your pet portrait drawing.

ACTION SHOT

An action shot can make an epic pet portrait, but you may need to polish up on your photo skills. Capturing a good action shot of your german shepherd can prove to be tricky. For good visual reference I need a photo that for the most part has clarity and is clearly focused. Obviously the main body of the dog can be slightly blurred and this out of focus element will add to the visual movement, which will be capture within the drawing. Most modern day smartphones and SLR cameras have various settings that will assist you in capturing a good shot of your german shepherd. Please have a look at my photo guide page, this may be if use to you in shooting a great photo for your pet portrait drawing.
