Ok so as you can all see I have been working hard on getting the Pudge on here. lol I took three pics of it just to see how the light affects it. I am really pleased with this one, I just keep getting better and better, not bragging.
I did lots of touching up and lots of viewing, I am just about there and feel it will be an awesome portrait. Love the colours and love the pose. His eyes really make the image and I am deliriously happy with it. I need to step away from it and leave it for a few days, then go back to it and see where I can improve upon it.
As you can see I really love working on the face, the body is second to me. Cause really when a person looks at the Portrait they will focus on the eyes and see if there is anything there. I love putting life into the eyes. Not to say that the body should be ignored, cause that too is important. All my paintings have little things in them that give the portrait that certain something. I think Pudge has some nice subtle copper highlights, looks real nice. I usually do mostly bust images but this one was so cute I chose to do the whole thing. Love his little bear sit pose. Both back legs through the front legs, lol very cute Pude.
