Lucy, a Long-Haired Papillon

Posted by Louise L. Hagedorn on October 18, 2014 in Drawings |

Llucy_progression2ast week, Rica was drawing for her friend Scott, his long-haired chihuahua Papillon named Lucy . I decided to  see if I could make my own version of it and asked for the reference picture.

I also wanted to see how my drawings progress as I make them, so I periodically took shots with my iPhone 5S. One thing I learned is that it pays to take a picture. You’re able to see the drawing more objectively than when you’re staring at the  drawing in progress. Weird, but it’s useful for me.

I like that I was able to properly capture her eyes. But the hair, that was an exercise in patience.

Update: Scott let me know that Lucy is a Papillon, not a long-haired chihuahua. I’ve corrected the post to reflect as such. Thanks Scott!

    Thanks so much for this wonderful art of our beloved Lucy. Not that it really matters, but she is a Papillon, You’ve captured her Butterfly ears just perfect, and the expression on her face. Both you and Rica just nailed it. Excellent job, really appreciate this. Talented you are 🙂

      You’re welcome Scott. I’ll correct the post to reflect that she’s a Papillon.

      Thank you.
