If you can figure out which dogs these are, then I did good. :rolleyes:

I did some pencil sketches of a few of the dogs from these boards, and here they are. I'll probably ink them also.

I didn't ask permission to draw from the photos I used, so if you own one of these dogs and you want me to take down my sketch, just let me know.

Wow, these are good! Envy, envy!

The last one is our Kyla (minus some spots, because I'd overexposed her white parts as usual)!

As for the others, the first one looks like Solo, the second one is a very adorable face that I know from Flickr (Nova?). The third one I can't place right now *headscratch*...I'm sure I've seen those markings...

Hey, she does have really spotty legs, doesn't she? I'll have to go back and add those in.

You picked out Solo and Nova pretty quick :rolleyes: Still guessing on sketch number 3 though! I thought Solo would be the hardest to pick out.

She's even spottier in person :rolleyes: . But being so black, she's hard to take photos of without having the white parts come out too bright, obscuring a number of spots. I wouldn't worry about those though - she's got enough spots not to be picky about them!

I think it's Diesel (now that I'm closer to being fully awake)!

WOW, these are really good!

Nova is so obvious :D Look at that signature Kyla smile! And I think you might be right with Diesel as #3. Good job, Sandra!

Ohh, and you HAVE to become familarized with Nova - she is one of the most beautiful split face girls :rolleyes:

Thanks for the compliments :D

And just for verification - Solo, Nova, Diesel, and Kyla by order of appearance. I've got a couple more that're about half sketched, but I probably won't have time to finish them till the weekend. (darn job :rolleyes:)
