Porky the dog

Porky in pencil.

This is a drawing of Rosy dog Porky from Fritzy Art Blog.

The drawing is from a photo and I used the grid system.
I like doing freehand drawings but I find the grid system is best for creating a true likeness.

He's gorgeous! Nice job, Nick! I like the grid system too, particularly for animals, though sometimes I get lazy and just freehand. :)
