Black Lab with Ball by anniecanjump Black Lab with Ball by anniecanjump
8x10 on Mi-Teintes gray colored paper. Using Prismacolor colored pencils.

Black is not just black so I used a variety of different colors to produce this.

I love the blase' look on his face and the spit on the bottom of the ball.

Wonderful painting! This is the spittin' expression of my dog, Sirius. He was the most lovable ball-crazed nut.

Your colouring skills made this look really, really sleek! I couldn't believe it to be done with only colouring pencils! The shading is simply gorgeous!

Thanks a lot. I love doing black coats in colored pencil. Black isn't just black, I add lots of other colors to create it.

Amazing color pencil work~!!

If you just made the ears longer and added several pounds, he/she would look just like my Sophie! [link] (it's not such a great photo, but she's still cute)
She just adores tennis balls-- the only toys she plays with!!

Thanks. I love working with colored pencils. I had a peek at your Sophie and she is adorable. I had a goat named Sophie. Thanks for the nice compliment and sharing your picture of Sophie.

That is so cute. It's like s/he is saying, "What? I got it didn't I?" or something like that xD

Pfft, my dog tries to do that but he's too small and can only fit one ball in that muzzle of his xDDD It's so funny when he tries to pick up another ball but only ends up kicking it around
