The evolution of Teddy
As I have been quite busy with my pet pawtraits, I decided it would probably be a good idea to film them so that you guys can see how they are pieced together! Of course, every pet is different but I always start out with mentally separating out the different layers on the image. To put it simpler, work from the bottom up. For example, the chest would always naturally come first, due to the head being on top and potentially having over-lapping fur onto the chest. Next would usually be the ears, as again, fur from the head would often over-lap this.
I work through the entire image like this until I end up with the finished portrait.
