Some animal portraits take more time than others. I've designed several critters that I finished in a couple of hours but trying to capture this kid took a lot of tweaking.
I wanted to make a portrait of Ant, my Flickr/Facebook friend Paul Sopocy's cute old companion, who even has his own Facebook page!
I selected a few photo's and went to work. Ant is a little dog, he's very cute and lovable, he's one of a kind but capturing his features was not as easy as it may look.
I've made a lot of variations of his snout, his ears, the shape of his head, but whatever I tried I kept seeing a raccoon, a fox, sometimes a cat!
After trying everything I think I've finally got it right, at least I'm happy with it:-)
