Dreyfus the German Shepherd



Just finished a portrait of a German Shepherd called Dreyfus.
 
The only remaining photo of him was pretty old and not very flattering so I used another couple of photos as reference to open his eyes and bring his ears forward.
 

 

Reference material...

 
 Rough sketch,

 
 
 Nearly finished...

 
The end result, his owner was very pleased with him.
