Guidance Dogs: Great Dane final!

^ The rest of the background has been primed.


^ Tinting with a complementary blue.


^ Impressed dots on the nose for texture.


^ Finished nose!


^ With so many layers of color built up, the illustration - after being buffed with a cotton ball - becomes very shiny and semi-reflective.


^ The final Great Dane.


Overall I'm pretty happy with this piece. The background gave me the most trouble; I kept overthinking the use of complements for the underpainting, and thus the middle part is disruptive. BUT, it was a good lesson for myself.

On to the Rhodesian Ridgeback!
