Precious Lucy

A friend asked me to draw her lovely dog, Lucy. It was a bit of a challenge; I hadn’t done a black dog before and my last attempt at a black furry creature (my mischevious, murderous cat Skye) didn’t turn out well. So, I was nervous but interested to see how I got on. Unfortunately, Lucy passed on before I finished, and I felt more determined to get her right for my friend.
