I did this for my wife's aunt for christmas. Her beagle passed last year and I thought it would be thoughtful. I didn't expect her to cry so much. I don't have access to the photo here at work, but I liked the reference picture quite a bit because she looks like she is smiling. This is the second time I've drawn a dog, and both times happened to be beagles. They're really fun to draw because the usually have such good variation in value in the fur on their backs. I have a black cat at home that I'm afraid to try to draw because she really has no difference in value. It would be quite a challenge.
