Shorkie Portrait

This is a recent colored pencil portrait I completed of a little Shorkie named Oli. He is a cross between a Shih Tzu and a Yorkshire Terrier. Shorkies also go by the name Shorkie Tzu.
Oli the Shorkie

He is a lively little fellow who would play ball all day if he could, so it's only appropriate that he should be holding a ball in his portrait.

I completed the pet portrait using Derwent Coloursoft Pencils and Prismacolor colored pencils. I applied acrylic paint with a small brush for a few of the highlighted hairs.
