RJ the Beagle ~ Finished Pencil Portrait

RJ rescue beagle pencil portrait
Here is the finished portrait of RJ the 4 year old rescue beagle. I am extremely happy with the final outcome as were his owners. However I did decide to make a few changes from the original photograph. First, I removed the bone from the bottom left corner so that I could capture more of the leg. Second, I softened the shadows around the facial features which looked rather harsh in the photograph.

If you like what you see, prints of RJ are available for purchase on my website, or why not commission a portrait of your own. Visit my website for more details
