Drawing My Dog Maggie by Heatherrooney Drawing My Dog Maggie by Heatherrooney
Colored pencil drawing of my beautiful dog Maggie, a Golden Retriever. About 2 months ago Maggie passed away at age 14. She was such a great dog and my family and I were so lucky to have her. I’ll cherish this drawing along with the memories I have with her.

Pencils used: Caran d'Ache Luminance colored pencils 

Drawing video: youtu.be/EkHk9oDaZQM

One of the most impressive coloured pencils portraits I've seen! So beautiful and detailed.
What paper stock do you use for your pencil work?

Nice tribute, very heart-warming. Sorry to hear that Maggie passed away. Always tough to lose a dog - especially one that grew up with you. You did her justice in this drawing.

Beautiful picture! Goldens are such a loveable breed. I used to have one of my own before he tragically passed back in April, nowadays just seeing a picture of one puts a smile on my face, amazing work :)

Beautiful dog, beautiful drawing. I may be biased - Golden Retrievers are my favorite breed of dogs. Thanks for sharing.

I can see it but I'm still trying to believe this is made from colored pencils. You've done the pulchritudinous Maggie justice.

First off, this is an absolutely incredible drawing. I had to do a double take as I honestly at first thought it was a photograph. I am very sorry to hear about your loss, dogs are such wonderful creatures and like any pet they really become part of the family. I lost my dog recently as well so I can sympathize. But its such a wonderful way to remember her, great artwork and best wishes.

In your video you're using some very fancy looking pencils. Where'd you get those? Do you have any tips? It's so amazing, how long have you been drawing?

There's no way this is colored pencil. This has to be a picture. It looks too real to be colored pencil

This is so incredible!  I saw the video on your Facebook page and I am so amazed at how incredibly life-like it is.  If I did not see the video of you drawing it, I would swear up and down that this is a photograph!!!  Your skills never cease to amaze me.
