1. Another excellent piece of work from the lovely and talented Colleen Ponce.

  2. Hi Colleen, Your sketches make that page seem 3-dimensional. This one is my favorite so far because of the Cute Chloe and your technical treatment of all the little wrinkles …and her eyes. Nice work!–Rachel

  3. This is so sweet! My daughter has bulldogs and I’m going to share this with her. Thanks also for subscribing to my blog πŸ™‚

    Hi Colleen. I found you because you subscribed to my blog. Thank you.
    I love this sketch. My little dog is a Tibetan Spaniel and is about the size of Chloe’s head.

  7. wow. Thats amazing! Thanks for suscribe to my blog! if you have something that you feel i write too little about or anything that can change, write to me and let me know! Thank you and again really nice job on thins painting!

  8. Hi Colleen,
    We have a female bulldog named Bessie. She’s about eight years old. We rescued her. I think she looks a lot like Chloe. We had a male bulldog named Bagel who lived to be 15 years old. Bulldogs are something else. Bessie doesn’t like to get much exercise. It’s often an effort to get her to walk around the block, but she’s very loving. She feels like the reincarnated spirit of Bagel. We waited five years after Bagel died before adopting Bessie. She was about five or six when we adopted her. Anything’s possible, I suppose.

  9. Hello Colleen,

    I’ve seen that look before, but it wasn’t from a dog…lol
    Excellent work…very lifelike

  17. Bulldogs have such character, don’t they?

  18. This is incredible. I had to spend a few minutes convincing myself that this wasn’t just a desaturated photograph. Again, excellent work.

  19. You have captured the “Bulldogness” of a Bulldog! The bulldog in your sketch has aliveness and animation. It conveys babylike innocence.

  20. What an adorable piece! Thanks for posting this! πŸ˜€

  21. Whoa, you’re talented! Very impressive! You do incredible work!

  22. Your drawings take my breath away. I have a wonderful connection with animals and you capture their essence so beautifully.

    Thanks for visiting me today. Hugs, pat

  23. Oh my goodness Colleen! Do you do portraits from photos? I have some munchkins that would keep you busy.

    Subscribing now!

  25. Your drawings are amazing. They would be cool in a book. Have a look at some of Shaun Tan’s work. Thanks for subscribing to my blog from so far away…

      Thank you very much for your compliment. I would love my work in a book one day. Also, thank you for shining the light on Shaun Tan’s work. I book marked his website so I can reference it later. I can draw realistically, but I can’t doodle like he can. Its a real talent. See you around wordpress πŸ™‚

  26. I love this dog! Have seen some of the rest of your work and I’m very impressed. How long have you been drawing? You’re a very talented artist. Keep posting these beautiful drawings πŸ™‚

    • cjot said:

      Hey thanks, I have been drawing for about 13 years.. give or take. I did stop drawing for about 9 of those years in between. I wish i hadn’t, but we can’t go backwards ( as my mother always tells me πŸ™‚ ) so I just work with what I have now and keep going. I have already started my next project, hopefully it will be up soon πŸ™‚

  27. Beautiful! I love the look the pup is giving–such a sweet face, little bit sneaky and lot bit cute! Thanks for checking out my site!

  30. I generally dislike dogs, but I really like this picture. So… maybe one day, I’ll grow up and want a picture of a dog. But not a real one. πŸ˜‰

  31. Wow!!! I thought this was a black & white Photograph. It’s perfect!

  32. still amazed how awesome you can draw, you have a serious big talent πŸ™‚

  33. This is gorgeous, I thought it was a black and white photograph until I looked again. Truly beautiful and you can see the life in her eyes!

    • Thanks… I can’t believe so many people think that these are photos πŸ™‚ I guess I really am my own worst critic!!

  34. This is phenomenal. I thought your drawings were black and white photos. You have wonderful talent. I wish I could draw like this.

  35. I love this drawing. It feels like Chole is getting ready to give someone a big kiss. I am very impressed and keep up the good work. πŸ™‚

  36. Wow this is beautiful! Thought it was an actual photo

    This is a fantastic drawing, it has so much personality and expressiveness. Plus, what a tremendous amount of patience to render this in carbon.
