More Curly Fuzz Poodle

Another Curly Fuzz Poodle drawing by John.

Round 1: Eek!
I spent quite a while trying for this-- I started a couple of days ago, tried a few times to pick it up again, but I couldn't get it to look right. I didn't bother doing details or cleaning it up because something just seemed wrong about it. I squished it together. Upon closer inspection, I just ATE UP the spaces horizontally. I decided since so much of it was wrong, as a result, to just start on a new piece of paper.
So I started a meticulous do-over, this time checking more frequently how I was doing...
Lots of checking and squishing and fixing.
Finally, it started to look closer to correct.
I don't like the way his ears look. The details are not handled elegantly and the thicknesses of the ears vary. They're also a bit rounded out.

Later edit--

put perspective in the feet

the one that's closest to us should be bigger than the one that's farther away

be careful of the silhouette while fixing my mistake
So I tried to tweak some things-- I drew the closer foot again on a new piece of paper and Photoshopped it on in (pretty much the same idea as taking an X-acto and taping it in, only less involved with dangerous blades), and also made it so you could kinda see the old foot. Also tweaked the ears while I was at it.

  1. The final product looks OUTSTANDING. I've been sifting through all your posts and it's so much fun to see such dramatic progress.

    Please, keep it up!
