Dog Portrait And Figure Drawing

Here is a graphite portrait drawing of my roommate's dog, Harper, that I finished the other day. First time I have ever drawn someone's pet. We took him to the dog park a few weeks ago and I took a lot of pictures of him in natural sunlight. He is a hyper dog, so getting him to sit for a photo shoot would have been difficult. I still had to be quick with shooting pictures, I just didn't have to worry about lighting him as the sun took care of that for me.

Next is probably the best 3 hour figure drawing I have ever done. I don't have the drawing anymore. I gave it to the model in exchange for a photo shoot. I am thinking about having her pose as a zombie/monster slaying bad ass ballerina.
