The trouble with drawing one's own dog is that that one then becomes hugely attached to the image and can't sell it. That's all fine and good, but it can be hard for business. :-) As you can probably guess, Nellie was one of my dogs. I drew her for two reasons: 1) she's really cute 2) I needed a sample dog portrait to show potential clients that I am indeed capable of drawing dogs. And who could have been a better subject than pudgy sweet (and more than a bit boneheaded) Nellie?
