Sketchy pup

My dog is quite the poser, which is handy as I love to take photos of my handsome boy.
You can see how this sketch built up, starting with a pale study and moving through darker shades until I had picked out his features nicely.
This really is a quick study, I used a photo for reference but didn’t let myself
get too bogged down in the little details.
It was his playful character I aimed to capture, with bold scratchy lines and a splash of red.
Oh and in case you were curious, I don’t know what breed he is either!
He’s a lovely mix up, and his funny little habits are just adorable.
I expect you’ll be seeing much more of him in the future 🙂
