I started doing personalised rainbow dog portraits because I saw on Twitter a thing called ‘Doggust’ which is something to do with drawing dogs in August and then posting them on social media using the hashtag #doggust. I was a bit late to the party and only found out this was a thing a week into August so I decided to do my own thing a bit and draw my the dogs that belong to my friends and family.
My friend Kelly has a sticker on her car of a multicoloured German Shepherd and I’ve always wanted to do a digital sketch full of lots of rainbow colours like that so I thought #doggust might be a good opportunity to give it a try.
The first rainbow dog portrait I did was of a dog called Luna, who is Kelly’s youngest German Shepherd. I started with a beautiful picture she took of her and imported it into Procreate on my iPad. I then drew round the outline so that it was actually a personalised picture of Luna, not just a generic German Shepherd.
Then I just went wild, adding lots of different colours and brush textures until I’d created a beautiful personalised picture that really captured Luna’s spirit.
Kelly has another beautiful German Shepherd called Scarlett (Scar for short) so I did a pet portrait of her too. They are such sweet natured, adorable dogs, Kelly and her family have worked wonders with them. I hope I have managed to capture their colourful characters.
After I sent her the pictures of Luna and Scarlet, Kelly asked if I could do a rainbow dog portrait of her sister in law’s Yorkie Chihuahua called Indi. I hope she likes it.
When I was last back Down South I took a photo of my friend Rhiannon’s dog Sunny and I used that picture to turn him into a rainbow dog too. “Is Sunny really rainbow coloured?”…genuine question from one of my girls!
This cute canine is Dora the Springador who is just about to turn one. Happy birthday Dora!!
I’ve done a few pieces of artwork featuring my sister’s bouncy little lab, Floyd, so I had to turn him into one of my rainbow dogs.
