Dog reference image

mock up (below)

Maltese poodle mix photo   

Size: 8" x 10"
Medium: Pastel
Breed:  Maltese-Poolde mix
Name: Korky

Description: The client's reference photo above had good lighting but the background and shadows were too distracting. I "fix" this on the digital enhanced mock up which gives an idea of the final product. At the request of the client, the toy was not included on the final portrait.
