I started work on the corgi portrait a few of days ago. It has been harder lay out than most (except for black) because the brindle is hard to see through enough to delineate the head. The pencil up is taking longer because of it. Somehow I made the eyes way too small the first time around, so I need fresh eyes over the course of a couple of days to get it right.
I didn’t know corgis could come with a brindle coat. It’s not a merle, but a brown overlayed with black. It is a downward shot and I am still debating on how much of the back to show. She isn’t particular about that, but there is not a lot of brindle on the face and she definitely wants to show his colors.
