New Designs - Featuring the Basset Hound

A busy few weeks of drawing, has resulted in some new dog candle designs.

After lots of requests for the Basset Hound, I looked at what I had already drawn, but decided it was time for something new.

One of my favourite parts of the process is picture research, where I can build up an image of what is a typical breed pose, bodily expression and character. In an ideal situation I like to create several drawings in different poses to have a few to select from.

I polled for opinions on this drawing from Instagram

and it came back as a 100% yes, but I was still unsure whether it was Bassety enough……

So I went back to the drawing board and created this instead….

and for whatever reason, this was the one I loved…… which has resulted in this!
