Ok - this is my first attempt at putting a background on my work (besides just a colour). And even though its not the most detailed (I wanted to keep the eye on the dog not whats around her) and its a little lighter than the photo I worked off of, I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out. Especially since she's my little baby! 6"x9" prismacolored coloured pencils on 100lb vellium paper. Thanks for looking!!!
