Home / Hints & Tips / BUSTER THE BULLDOG!


I currently have the largest pet portrait on my easel I’ve been asked to do to date! I am LOVING working on such a large scale. It’s allowing me to add so much more details and achieve far more realism than I’ve created before. Due to that I’m going to be planning some larger portraits for upcoming tutorials on Patreon :). Showing the tips and techniques I use to take your artwork to the next level.

I am sharing regular updates, hints, tips and techniques to my Instagram story. All of these are then saved in my ‘highlights’ should you want to go and see those :). My instagram is @zaratomsart

Here are a couple of updates showing the progress so far πŸ™‚
