Sassy Little Pom - WIP 2, Maybe Final

I've been working on this off and on since my last post and I'm still not satisfied. However, I'm on the verge of overworking it so may just call it finished unless someone has any suggestions.

The biggest thing is the shadow areas. They don't look right to me but I've worked and reworked them and don't know where to go from here.

Anyway, this is Sassy. I think she's finished - at least for now! lol

She looks good to me Jan! There have been several times I have had to call something good to keep from overworking it too much. What we notice others do not. Your shadows look great to me.

don't do any more to her, she looks perfect, there really is a danger of over working, been there, done that plenty of times!

Yes, I would agree she is finished, shadows look good and eyes are beautiful, super portrait, cute little dog.
What size is this? and what paper?

Jan said...

Thanks everyone! I'm glad to put this one away as I was at a standstill with it.

Geraldine, it's 9x12 inches on Strathmore charcoal and pastel paper (the background is the paper color).

I'd agree that its done. There is a fine line between done and overworked and I often cross it.

After a couple of days, revisit it and then send it on its way if you still feel the same way.

Sweet dog and beautifully doen by the way.

I too say it's done...and very well too Jan. Looks so soft and beautiful. Great Job.

Thank you, Jeanette, Teresa and Dors! I'm glad you all agree that it's done!
