This pencil drawing of a Border Collie was a preliminary sketch for a painting.  Her name is Elsa. I drew her on 5.5×8 inch paper.

I thought a three-quarters view would be more interesting than a front or side view. I find drawing challenging (which is why I like it), so I was worried I would draw a distorted image. After finding a model and using a lot of guiding lines and shapes, I think it worked out.
