Portrait Alert! Digital Painting of Scout


Reference Photo of Scout

As I way to relieve the 2020 stress that has been building - and after running out of subjects for pet portraits - I put out a call for any friends and family who wanted to have their pets recreated digitally.


Enter Katie and Scout.


I went to high school with Katie. She knew me back in the days when I was the shy, quiet, and even more awkward kid than the opinionated, introverted, and slightly awkward adult I have grown to become. Back in high school, I was known for being artsy and even voted Most Artistic for our Senior Superlatives.


Yes, I was that kid.

Katie reached out and asked that I create a pet portrait of her adorable dog, Scout. She sent me tons of reference photos to choose from, and the stud was even wearing a bow tie in one of them! When creating this piece, we decided to go with a patterned background in colors that matched her home. All in all, I am very excited for how this turned out - and even more, how much she loved it!


This pet portrait was drawn digitally using ProCreate on an iPad Pro. See the photo below for the final portrait!
