Annie as Totem by Ravenari Annie as Totem by Ravenari
Annie is, in the words of her owner, the delightful NakedZen (:iconnakedzen:);

"As far as I know, she's 3/4 Golden and 1/4 some sort of hound... a lot of people mistake her for a Lab, though."

One thing I know is that Annie is beautiful, to draw and to work with. :)

I highly recommend you check out this photo, for more accurate colours: [link]

All your pictures are excellent!

The eyes are really something - I could tell this was a specific portrait just looking at them :aww:

Glen (the guy I live with) said the same thing! He was like 'oh, I can tell immediately that's someone's animal friend.' Which was really cool.

Thank you. :) (And I think she has more of a 'concerned because I love you' face, heh).

Maybe it's 'I am an old soul and I want your chocolate!'

Our kitten Maybe looks perpetually worried. Heh.

She likes anything meat-flavoured.

Did you know that there is bacon flavoured chocolate? I found this out myself recently; though I didn't taste any!

Annie won't be getting any chocolate, though. Tasty death is not on the menu :(

I looove it! She i so cute! I like the idea for the totem. I like the texture that you have chosen to use. How did you do it, by the way? I mean, it is due to the type of the paper or... whatever. I love this texture, that's why I am curious. :) Thank you

I use cold-pressed illustrator's board, and then basically use waterfast black ink, and then a layer of watercolour pencils, and then coloured pencils blended in, and then acrylic to delineate details.

All the texture I create is basically my own, the illustrator's board I get has only enough grain to hold onto the pencil. Anymore grain and it destroys the nibs of the fineliners. :)
