Portrait Illustration, part 3: Finished art

To see earlier stages of this art, scroll down this blog to Parts 1 and 2.

The client sent me further photos of her dad after I’d started the finish, because she was not entirely satisfied with the likeness in my sketches. (I have never met the gent, was working from photos only.) She found one photo that really captured him and I was able to adjust the face before painting. The dachshund was not as difficult to get, thank goodness! It does reinforce to me that I have to insist on good clear photos of subjects for jobs like this, and the more photos the better, to really capture the subject.  In the end, she is very pleased with the finished work, below.
