-The original quick sketch was done from a photo using a grid on a layer.
-I laid down some background color,
- then started laying in flat colors.
- Started using different brushes to create the fur and decided to fake DOF by quickly creating “bokeh” in the background.
- Balanced the Hue and Tone of the image as well as continued detailing the mouth, which is really the focus of the piece.
- Finishing touches and signature …all of the detail really occurs in the mouth, the rest is fairly loose..This was just an exercise because I was bored with a current project and I seriously needed a distraction.
