Cheveyo Drawing

Well since I haven't worked on my painting in so long, I figured I'd better do something artistic soon, or I'll lose all my talent! When I heard about Cheveyo, I was really upset for Mike and AnnMarie. They did a great job taking care of him and training him, and they did everything they could to save him. I offered to do a painting of Cheveyo for them. I originally planned on an acrylic painting but decided to do a chalk pastel portrait instead. I can get more detail with the chalk, and it's a nice soft medium, quite suitable for Cheveyo's kind nature.

So, here are the first 5 layers. These pastel drawings go much faster than the paintings I do because I don't have to wait for anything to dry!
