I’ve been inactive for health reasons for the past while, but I’m back! Over this past weekend I decided to come up with a trio of portraits based off a few of the internet’s favourite celebrity pets.

Below is a gallery of the WIPs, for those curious. Continue reading

Read on for WIP shots and a photo of our beautiful & beloved ‘gentle giant’. Continue reading
