Pet Portrait: French Bulldog

For my brother & sister-in-law’s wedding, I decided to draw a portrait of their beloved Frenchie, Snark. He is freaking adorable. So fun to draw. I pulled a picture of him off Facebook and decided to make it a surprise. I was super nervous because this was the first drawing I have ever given as a gift and since it was so personal, I wanted to make sure I captured him perfectly. I did a lot of second guessing, but overall I am happy with the way it turned out and turns out, they are too!

I used HB-6B and it took me about 2 hours.

New Sketch “He’s Got The Whole World in His Hands”

Long time since an update! Hope people are still sticking around! I have some new pieces but have been slacking on the website!.

This is a piece I did in July. It is the largest drawing I have ever done on a 16 X 24 piece of paper and done mainly with 2B-6B pencils. I honestly can’t even remember how many hours this took, but it took a long time. I paid very close attention to detail and wanted to make sure it was perfect. In the areas with the most detail I would spend up to 1 hour on a square inch of detail. I was very nervous to draw the “world” and I contemplated leaving it blank and jokingly made a statement that if the whole world thing didn’t turn out, it could just be a white ball & end up a picture of someone playing beer pong. 😉

Anyways! Hope you enjoy, I have some prints available to purchase and am also selling a downloadable PDF as well. Just drop a comment! As always, I appreciate all feedback, constructive & otherwise.

This was a quick watercolor I did a few weeks ago. I’m still getting used to using watercolor, but I really liked the abstract look of it. The color use was a lot of fun to play around with. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out and framed it for my son’s nursery 🙂

This is my 2nd watercolor painting & I’m still using the pencils with a flat brush. I was just kind of experimenting with different techniques and getting used to using the colors.. I almost feel awkward using a brush and color pencils- just not used to it! There are so many ways to create different looks you want and it was all experimental. You will definitely find mistakes and places I wish I could erase, but it was fun. I’m excited to expand into this medium! Hope you enjoy ❤
