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!
