Thanks both! Yeah Charlotte I agree, they look a little weird to me too but that’s what she asked for. I tried to push for more background, at least some shoulders but felt like I was alienating her by expressing my artistic opinion ( lol) so I backed off.
That was my biggest issue Val, scary stuff and a LOT of post production editing.
I overuse that drop shadow thing too. Maybe it’s the way I do it but I also think it flattens the foreground element so I’m loathe to do it here.
Good news is she’s just paid me for all three pieces I’m doing for her so YAY! She must be happy huh?

All babies look the same to me. :dunno:

Well, that's my excuse anyway...

At least the flowers look different from each other. :P

That's the reason I picked this photo to paint. I usually just leave any flowers as a sketchy mess of vague brush strokes so I wanted to do some with a bit more detail. :)

Flowers look spot on Val, nice eyes and ears too!

Here’s the first of my doggos, just been approved by the client so I’m happy but any C&C is appreciated as always.

That looks just about perfect! :)

Love the subtlety of the textures and colours, like the little bumps on the wet nose and the suggestion of fur without resorting to drawing individual strands. :thumbup:

These "looking down at pet" photos are some of my least favourite references to work from because of the potential problems they create but you've succesfully dealt with every possible issue and I really can't think of any way to improve on it.
Well done!

Thanks very much both!
Managed to get another 1 1/2 dogs done today so I’ve got 1 day left to do 2 1/2. Arghhhhhh!
Anyway here’s no 2.
