Bobby Blue - Pet Portrait

Very challenging portrait. Not only that it takes three times more to draw animals due to the fur texture, it is always difficult to catch the individual character of a pet in a portrait.

This artwork was created in CorelDRAW X6, entirely in vectors, with the Artistic Media Tool and applied transparency (exactly 1700 single strokes were made, broken apart and made transparent with the Interactive Transparency Tool). I am so thankful that X6 now has the vector distortion features such as twirl, smear attract and repell, which makes it a lot of fun to squeeze and stretch vector shapes!
