Poodle Portrait

Poodle Portrait

Sometimes my models make me smile every time I set eyes on them. These two are just too cute, don't you agree?

The photo reference had a different background that I substituted with my clients flowers. 

I like to really add texture whenever possible and the curls on these dogs was just ideal for that purpose. In photos the highlights of the eyes often is lost and I brought all that out again. 


There is a bit of glare on some of the images, but I think you can see how the fur was layered to create dimension.
