McKinney Drawing Stages

The WIP photos from the project…finally in an animated GIF.

While in progress, McKinney’s eye, head and body all changd shape. His eye started out more vertical and less shaded than it really is. When drawing dogs or cats, completing the eye settles the image.

His head and body shape were too short in my initial drawing. This gave him a pointy head and a strangely foreshortened body. Keep an eye on the left side of the animation and you’ll be able to see the moment the rest of his body shows up…ha!

McKinney is a Great Pyrennes and predominantly white, so drawing him was a study in negative space. This meant I had to really watch it and not overcook the detail.

Thanks for stopping by!
