Thanks TLA & PencilMeIn. I'm not usually the dog-drawing type.
Here's the next one I did.
Another charcoal piece 11x14

My next one is our other Jack Russell. I may start it as a w.i.p. Depends on whether I can remember to take a picture before I get too far for a starting point.

That's beautiful! I tend to do dogs more than anything else. I really need to sit down and try to do a horse again.

It's so cool to see you drawing a dog. I have definately fallen in love with charcoal. Such a bold medium!

Thanks Liz, it's definitely out of the norm for me =)
And isn't charcoal great?! I'm getting more into leaving it unblended. It was really hard for me at first but now I'd rather leave it that way.

I thought I'd post my progress on Brewski.

p.s. I just realized that I can click on the picture to make it bigger. Duh on me!

Here's the finished piece.

It's an odd looking pose but it sums up his personality in a nutshell.
Side note: He was sitting on a cat when this photo was taken =)

Great job, you've captured his expression so well.
