Joey by Scotston Joey by Scotston

Very last minute commission of Joey on A3 / 11 x 16" (Stayed up all night several nights in a row to get it done)

Worked from a very poor quality photograph, so had to build up the shoulders using other photographs of him.

Been up all night, so the photo is probably pretty bad and I've just not noticed.. going to sleep now.. shattered

Enjoy!

Great technique!! Unfortunately I wasn't able to get a closer look...
Maybe you may want to stress some features such as the eyes so it's more interesting than a picture ;)

How do you mean stress some features?

Make them darker, or even surrounded by light. 
For example:

Look at how the eyes pop out (which I'd say is one of the most important parts of any living creature, but that's up to you!) 

This focuses on how majestic and I'd say mysterious this horse is.

The beauty of drawing as opposed to photography (although it's not always true...) is that we can decide to stress and omit some details in order to make the composition and image more appealing. I think the beauty of an art piece is in it's ability to bring emotions out, not it's absolute likeliness with reality (although I can assure you I've been seeking for perfection and hyper realism in my art since I was small :P)

Hope this helps! :)

The eyes do pop out on the first image, yes, however it makes it appear very cartoony, which is not what I am commissioned to create.  The second image uses more background, but again,  if I'm not asked or required to create a piece that has a great in depth background.  I aim for realism, so for me, art is making it as real to the subject I am asked to create.   I agree bringing emotion in to a piece is good, though I find a lot of my commissioners see their animals 'characters' in their portraits, which is good enough for me. :)
