Alfons by Per-Svanstrom Alfons by Per-Svanstrom
The first drawing of 2011 is finaly finished!

This is a portrait of a lovely dog named Alfons. I was asked to do this drawing as a birthday gift.
Alfons is sadly no longer with us so I wanted to portrait him as a "free soul" with a light on him.

I had 3 different photos to look at when making this. It was difficult but in the same time I had a lot of fun.

So tell me what you think!? :)

Size: A4 (21x30 cm)

Mechanical pencils 0,5 mm H and 2 B
Kneaded eraser
Blending sticks

Time: 12 hours


Go to my WIP's gallery to see how I made it -> [link]

I use a Canson illustration paper. It is pretty thick and the texture is good for drawing both humans or animals.
