Meet Katie – my sweet, lovable, mixed-breed dog whose pedigree includes Rottweiler and pit bull (and probably beagle). We adopted Katie from our local SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) when she was 2 years old . Today, (despite the horrors of her previous situation), she is very happy, and has the waggiest tail and the biggest smile you can imagine.
In this project, I show you a somewhat different approach to using a grid, as well as how to fade out a drawing by graduating the shading to white around the lower sections of your work. If you want to draw your own pet or another dog you can still follow along with my drawing process, but set up a grid using your own photo.
