Yoda Portrait is a digital painting that I created for the Creative Pet Project. The project consists of over 100+ artists from all over the world and features artist biographies along with images of each of the artists with their pets. We were each asked to create a piece that is inspired by animals, in most cases our own pets. I first began the project by doing a series of drawings of my Boston Terrier Yoda until I came to a sketch that I was happy with. From here I worked on refining the sketch and cleaning up the line art before scanning it into Photoshop. Once that was completed I cleaned up the illustration and began the painting process. This is only my first attempt at drawing and painting an animal so please be kind :)
The finished painting will be featured in the book that is scheduled to come out early in 2013. All of the proceeds and money raised will go towards animal charities.
