Lobo is finished!

Lobo is finished! I had so much fun with this one, trying to capture the mixture of wild and tame, as well as his magnetic personality. I also really enjoyed painting his collar and tag, and I feel like they add to the overall painting a great deal.

More work on Lobo

I've added some background color behind the forelegs of the smaller portrait to separate it from the main one. I was planning to have them "merge" together in his shoulder fur, but this looks better to me. Starting to work on the muzzle here.

Refining the sides of the muzzle and working on the details of the nose, adding strong highlights to make it look cold and wet. I also started blocking in areas of the chest. I need to finish that before I paint the collar, to make it really "sit on top of" the chest fur. More to come...
