    First of all, this is Dekka's Peek. I've been trying my hand at horses again, since I have none in my portfolio. This was fun, definitely some things I need to work on, but good practice! Also played around with varied line colours.

    Next, Ronin and Kaylee for SizzleDog! This one was VERY challenging, in a good way. I had drawn Ronin before, but much more "toony". This was a challenge in drawing a more stoic, poised dog, and also a more realistic style. I'm VERY pleased with the result, and Sizzle is too. :D

    And finally, a bust portrait of Finnegan. I was sort of using him as a guinea pig to test some techniques with ink pen opacities, so this is a bit unpolished, but I really liked the expression.

    Enjoy!

    LOve Finn...the dobies' structure looks good and the horse lighting is quite pleasant.

    So it was Finn! :rofl1: The black around the nose really threw me off, didn't know if it was a brother/sister portrait.

    Yeah, that's part of the "unpolished" part. There's way too much black on his nose, his tan markings are a bit off, his right (our left) ear has too much tuck... :p I want to fix it up though, I really like it.
