-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.

I have been an Art Director in the Video Games industry for almost 15 years. It’s a lot of fun, but it’s a lot more work than most people realize.The hours are long and the responsibilities are many. It has left little time or energy for some of my more time consuming creative endeavors, sculpture,3D Modelling, illustration and film making, especially when balancing a family.
