Poodle again

John's original drawing

My study. I feel a little weird about the left foot in particular.


  1. I think you did a great job. I'm very impressed with all of your drawings. How much time do you devote to study's?

    also do you ever compare your study's to the originals in photoshop?

  2. Less than I'd like!! Ideally I'd spend 2-3 hours a day studying, but because this is my last semester of getting-a-piece-of-paper school, and I work part-time, it ends up being about an hour a day on a normal school-day. I'm embarrassed that it isn't more. I'm doing my best to change it back to what I used to be able to do!

    I do compare my originals in Photoshop. What I like to do is do the most basic of the construction and compare that in Photoshop before I start going into more detail. That way I don't spend lots of time on a study that has really big basic errors. Usually I compare again once I have the details down, but I didn't in this one because-- oh, jeeze, I've gotta get to bed!! Good night.
