The Fur Grandchild portrait

This is my mom and her fur grandchild, Flopper. Flopper is a "Flemish Giant," and he is huge. This drawing is based on a photo by the most excellent Drozian Photoworks.

I love this picture because Flopper's expression is like, "moooooom! you're embarrassing meee!"

Check out those rimless glasses! Oh yeah!

Part of me wants to start drawing animals, because I know there's business in pet portraits. And part of me says, "so what?" Rabbits are cute, but in general I prefer drawing people. Still, maybe I'll try giving animals another shot.

(Nancy or Amanda, have any good photos of your dogs? Lanie, how about Mochuck?)


  1. oh wow, your drawings are fantastic! so realistic... i wish i had that kind of talent.


  2. You have some amazing talent! I wanted to reach through the computer screen and pet that rabbit! He looks so real and soft!

  3. yes! you know how much i LOVE my little ones. :)

  4. Thanks guys. :) I look forward to seeing your photos, Nancy!

  5. Thank you so much, Kelley, for your comment on my blog! I hadn't seen your work before, and I'm blown away! It's amazing! I would have commented sooner, but I found myself drawn deep into your blog, catching a peek here and there when time allowed! Congratulations on getting accepted to art school. By the way, I do find watercolor difficult!

  6. Thank you very much, Raena! :D

  7. That is the cutest picture I have ever seen or ever will see for the rest of my life! I am petting my computer screen! You definately have the fur technique dialed. More Rabbits!!!
