    Ahh this is simply lovely! I just did my first dog painting, and I'm still trying to figure out how to paint fur. D: I'm so used to the smooth, sleek coat of a horse.

      Thank you so much! I see so many flaws in this portrait now x) I have developed my technique a bit https://www.weasyl.com/submission/1060394/portie-portrait
      With short haired dogs, you can start with drawing the smooth sleek coat, and then give it some definition afterwords? If you see the dark fur in the face, I have not painted individual hairs. I do that more on the transitions between colors and some edges.
      How about drawing a horse with fluffy coat? Then you have the familiar shape of the horse, and you get to practice a different coat?
