All the pets I draw these days tend to hang around in very comfortable poses and positions. Here’s a drawing of a Labrador retriever looking like he’s considering something important. Or very deep. Or food related.
A few months ago, I remember thinking that I’ve somehow made a breakthrough in regards to composition and disposition of the paper. Well, I was wrong. These days, for some reason, I seem to constantly need to correct a jaw, make a nose smaller or cut off ears in order to make my sketch fit on the paper. As you see in this one, I’ve got plenty of space above the pup’s head, but the chin seems to be a little compact (and it is – the photo is not like that!).. I suppose I better start planning out my drawings a little better from the beginning.
This one was another free drawing request

I don’t think we ever totally solve those composition problems. But sometimes lack of planning provides an interesting result! I think this works. (K)
Thanks a lot Kerfe. I do prefer to just go ahead and attack the paper.. And as you say, this might be where I’m forced to be creative and solving a problem rather than just copying the photo !
Aw, what a beautiful drawing.
Thank you so much!
