Hiya chaps,

Hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year, I've been away from blogging for a while now, so I hope to make up for that a bit.

I have a couple of actual commission type things on the go at the moment, so here are some sketches of dogs that aren't anything to do with them.
I will however, post some work stuff sketches in a bit, when they've all moved on to the next stage :)

These are two dogs called Elliot and Spiner that have developed in my sketch book over the last few weeks. I really enjoy drawing Elliot.
Elliot is the bigger one with big ears, and Spiner is the one with the pointy nose.
It's very satisfying doing the base of his nose just in front of his eyes for some reason.
I imagine Elliot being a bit slow and dusty, and like an old general, and Spiner is very energetic, never stands still.


  1. Hello, Jon! :-))) They are sooo cute!
    Elliot - so smart and slow, look like he moves as gliding over the floor :-)

    And Spiner, so ridiculous, I can imagine how he folds his nose when he smelling :-))))
    Thank you for cool mood, Jon!

  2. Happy New Year! Spiner is great - such a cheerful, open expression.

  3. I love the thick and thin line work, it's so nice and satisfying (it probably helps that the characters look awesome too!).

  4. Thanks guys.
    I've drawn these two quite a few times in my sketch pad, so I'm getting really familiar with them, which I think helps the line work.

  5. Jon, I like thin noses co the one is my favourite. Kind charakter.
