Commission - German Shepherd by Captured-In-Pencil Commission - German Shepherd by Captured-In-Pencil
This is 'Blue', a German Shepherd and was drawn 20"x16". The main aspect to capture was just how fluffy he is. His fur was tricky as it consists of lots of different shades, with different coloured hairs running into other areas. The photo provided was great as it picked up very fine hairs.

Commission completed May 2014. Mechanical pencils 0.3mm, 0.5mm and 0.7mm HB and 2B. Lots of cotton wool, tortillions and several rubbers. Was drawn on A2 heavy-weight cartridge paper, with the finished drawing measuring 16"x12 for an internal mount (20"x16" frame). 11 hours over the course of a 2 weeks.

Such a Beautiful Photo! Oh, wait... It's a drawing? WHAT!? NO WONDER WHY IT GOT A DD! HOLY ****! This is sick! (In a good way) The details in this are... amazing! You got that ear fluff JUST right! You have a great gift! I love the pose he is in and thtat you made this photographicly awesome! I would TOTALLY commission you! This particular artist gets every single detail done, and done right! The fur looks perfectly perfect! Yes, yes, the nose is very nice! Don't you think? And those eyes! WOW! You put much effort in this and what you do is Museum worthy! Again, very nice work and keep it up!

At first glance I thought this was an edited photo! I mean WOW, this is just amazing.

This is such a beautiful drawing. The detail, expression and the pose of the dog is just stunning to the eye. I have to really congratulate you on the daily deviation, a well deserved award for this artwork.

I love how you drew the eyes as well, such detail! And the fur, just wow. Everything in this is done to perfection, such a detailed piece.

Congrats once again! I will look forward to more art pieces like this in the future. Keep up the great work.

I have to agree with wolfloverforever21, everything she said and more!  I could look at this piece all day long, I am constantly looking to improve my own technique of drawing fur, and the highlights in the ear are incredible!  You HAVE managed to capture the "fluffiness" of this dog, spot on! Yet kept the inherit "German Shepard" long hairediness (is that a word? :) )  intact!!  The gleam in his/her eye brings your piece, yet once again, to the next unheard of level....... I would not be surprised to hear that dog clubs all over the world start contacting you to commission their next Breed Dog Club Logo.....

Totally AWSOME...what do you suggest as learning materials for someone wishing to make hair and fur look so natural.

A smooth paper, but not plate finish (I use cartridge paper). a 0.5mm mechanical pencil with HB lead, and 0.3mm mechanical pencil with a 4h lead. oh and cotton wool. Apply a layer and smudge, then another with finer detail and smudge and repeat :)
