Here are the St. Bernard sketches I mentioned yesterday. These were more sketches for the same potential client.
I believe these turned out better than the Siamese cats. I am not positive, but I think this is because I was looking at St. Bernards more freshly. The last book project I worked on involved a cat. After drawing cats for several months, my head thinks I know more about cats than I do, causing me to look less and fabricate more.
