Party Animals Week, Day Five: Process, Part Two

See Part One here

Once my pencil work was completed, I went in with my Rapidograph pen (.25 point size nib). I love this part of the process. I can kind of "zone out" and let my brain go on autopilot. Inking the lines is still a very creative process but it's kind of like rollerskating wearing knee pads. You are protected to begin with, but you can take a few chances and still feel safe.

And... Ta-da!! Here is the final painting!

Book giveaway ends tonight at midnight EST.

That is a very beautiful artwork. I am very sure that pet lover, most especially dog lovers, will definitely gonna love that. Also, you are truly blessed in making such a wonderful piece. I hope you still have more and I look forward in seeing those.
