I hadn’t made a canine pencil sketch in ages, so decided to make one, but with a difference. A just-for-fun sketch that says a lot about the animal in the picture.
So, here it is..in two stages….
A rough outline and the eyes in the making.
And, here’s the finished one –
I so wanted to draw pink lips on his forehead – a kiss on this lovely’s handsome face – but, I felt a heart would give it an adorable look!
I just can’t help it – I just have to kiss a dog when I meet one – muaahhh – along with a tight hug! Only then do I get the satisfaction of having met the fur baby!
Also sharing this sketch I made long ago of a Boston Terrier….the same breed as above.
The reason there are so many dog sketches in my art book is because I love dogs. Period.
Each time I plan on making the sketch of another animal, the plan fizzles out and in its place appears a dog, with eyes that speak a thousand words.
Did you know that dogs have a vocabulary of a 1000 words? They can learn and remember a thousand words we speak. Explains why my Chikoo understood every thing I said to him!
“Chikoo, how about a walk?”
“Hey, do you want to eat cheese?”
“Baby, I am running down to the grocer’s and will be back in a minute.”
“Chikoo, I think dad’s home!”
And, so much more! It was a pleasure just watching his eyes shine with excitement each time I said something to him. Magical, isn’t it?
Have you tried talking to a dog? Did you see their eyes speak?
