Amelia and Pup Portrait

It's been a long time since I have updated my blog
so I thought I would share a recent commission.

A few years ago I did a digital painting of
my client's granddaughter.  

They wanted a portrait of their other granddaughter
and the family's new pup!

Here's a quick look at my process...

Steps 1 through 6 is sketching to figure out
what I am thinking and composition.

I like to sketch in blue and then turn it into black
to move onto the next steps.

Steps 7 through 9 I was going to start painting
in color and so I fill it all in for an underpainting
and created a palette to work in values.

I changed my mind and decided to work in
grayscale and then do color overlays. 

I added more detail throughout my process
but didn't want to get too detailed.
I wanted it to look more traditional and
match the quality of the painting I did
for them previously. 

With a few revisions to step twelve, here's the final art.

I don't consider myself an expert in painting
portrait and know I have a lot to learn!

Thanks for visiting the Robb Blog!
