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.

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.

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 =)

He was sitting on a cat?! LMAO!

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

Lol yes he was. In our barn we've got a recliner (don't ask :rolleyes:) and the cat likes to chill there while we do our thing. Fortunately Boo and Brewski get along! Boo was all comfy and snoozin' when Brewski jumped up and plopped down right on top of him. I had been taking some photos of the horses for potential reference photos so I had the camera. The expression on his face was priceless so I took a shot.

Very well done! I really like the pose in particular. It's always nice to see something different than the standard "bust shot", you know? I also like the angle you've chosen to draw from. He comes across as very playful- in this drawing it's almost like he's ready to "pounce"!
