Unusual Pet Portrait

An unusual but fun pet portrait commission! The client lives in the USA and found me through my anime portrait site. They asked for their 3 dogs to be drawn as superheroes fighting a dragon in a forest with owls overlooking the scene. I thought it sounded like an epic portrait and happily accepted the project! Below you can see each stage of the illustration process. The final image was sent as an A2 sized JPEG file for the client to print onto a canvas.
