EDM # 52 - Happy Birthday, Cody!!!

EDM challenge # 52 was to draw a dog and, today, was Cody's 1st birthday so the perfect reason to sketch him.

We had a little party to celebrate and a good time was had by one and all.

I hadn't owned a dog for nine years after losing our little toy poodle but Cody found his way into our lives in early January and he has become a very precious part of our family. He is so cute and loves to play. He also loves to chew and we have to hide our good shoes away from him. He knows I'm the boss though or, at least, he lets me think I am. ;)

  2. Beautiful dog and great job of rendering him. Fur of a light color is always a challenge and you hit it right on the mark. I love drama so I have a hard time not darkening their coat too much. Happy Birthday Cody!!! Whooof!!! Whoooof!!!!!!!

  3. How adorable, my dogs are dark colored and I never get a picture with enough definition to sketch with detail - this is just FUN
    (and thank you so much for the comments on my blog, they encourage me so much

  6. Thanks, Felicity ~ :)

    Thanks, Teri ~ :)

    Thanks, Boyd. I had to hold myself back with this sketch because I also have the tendency to overwork light coloured animals until they actually look like they're a dark colour instead. :)

    Thank you, Sandy, and you're very welcome for the comments. Visiting your blog is a treat for me ~ :)

    Thanks, Deborah. I do see myself as very lucky to have Cody and he knows it. He plays on his cuteness all the time ~ :)

    Thanks, Lynn ~ :)

  7. Happy birthday, Cody!
    You are just super cute, and a real looker. Your human certainly did you justice in her sketch of you. BTW, I almost couldn't spot you amongst those stuffed animals!

    Woof,
    Luci.
