I’m shocked at how fast ive been able to get work done these last couple days! 😁 Here’s Thor’s finished portrait! For once I added the reference so you can see just how much more love, detail and care I put into every piece. I do not just copy photos but try to bring your pet to life on paper and embody their soul in the drawing. I always try to add more to my work than what I’m given to work with! ❤ I know Thor’s parents will be so happy to have a piece of their boy back home with them! 🐾 . . .

Hey y'all! So a miracle happened; I finished an 11"x14" commission in a day! 😃 I introduce you to Cowboy! A stunning border collie. Cowboy crossed over the rainbow bridge and his mom had this portrait of him commissioned! 💙🐾 Also I seldom post the reference photos, but I decided to for this one. My portraits aren’t just merely copying the photos you send to me, but adding in details, color and life to the drawing that embody your pets spirit 🐾 . . .

More shots of the portrait of miss Belle! She was sent out to her new home in NJ today. She passed away recently and her portrait is going to be a gift for her dad 🐾❤ I love being able to use my artistic abilities to bring peace and comfort to the families that have lost their fur babies. I have 4 border collies of my own and love them so much. I know just how important they are to us ❤ I hope her dad will love her portrait and feel closer to her everyday! 🐾🐶 . . .

Finally finished Belle’s portrait since having to completely redo it after my puppy got a hold of the first one! I changed up my process because of having a time crunch. So this one is done using oil paints and then once they dried, I went over top with oil based colored pencils to add in the details. You can swipe to see the painting underlayer VS the finished drawing. I’m really proud of this one. Especially after having to overcome the heart ache of seeing the first one torn to pieces by my pup and having a super bad depression episode. Trying my best to kick back when life tries kicking me in the ass! 😁 . . .

Some more progress on this gorgeous girl, Belle who crossed the rainbow bridge 🐾🌈. Also everyone keeps saying the well-loved yellow frisbee looks like a nasty mushroom 😂 its making me laugh!

A good bit more to do on the frisbee and the rest of the piece of course! But I’m making good progress after coming out of a little art slump! 🐾🌻🧡 Nothing like a border collie portrait to free me from my art block! What do you think so far? 😊🦴🐶. . . . . .

Y'all know I mostly do realistic pieces, but I love doing this sketchy, tattoo style work on the side for fun. It comes so naturally and is so fun for me. I’d love to turn some of these into coloring pages! Let me know if you’d be interested in something like that! This one is a tattoo design for someone I know! 🧡🐾🕊🌿🌹 . . . . . #hatching #pen #penandink #ink #drawing #illustration #tattoo #tattoodesign #art #artist #draw #sketch #bird #finch #roses #fineart #portrait #petportrait #petartist #artwork #friday #stylizedart #traditionalart #tattoostyle (at San Antonio, Texas) https://www.instagram.com/melissaconleyartist/p/BwxSMlwFFK0/?igshid=1lzcli1spxshh

I’ve had a really really bad week and it felt like every time I sat down to draw something was pulling my attention away from my art but I finally got this sweet house goat’s portrait covered. The messy underlayer and blocking in my values and hues is complete. I struggled a little deciding what color to do for the background so I settled for an olivey blue color! Now I can focus on really going in and refining the details, brightening and darkening up my lights and darks and really bringing this sweet girls portrait to life! . . . 🖥Facebook.com/MelissaDraws 📧MelissaConleyArtist@gmail.com 🌐MelissaConley.com . . . . #goat #housegoat #livestock #cutegoats #animal #animalart #art #artist #fineart #drawing #workinprogress #wip #illustration #painting #coloredpencilpainting #petportrait #petart #petportraitartist #realism #fabercastell #carandache #polychromos #luminance #like #artoftheday (at San Antonio, Texas) https://www.instagram.com/melissaconleyartist/p/Bv7m-lrlvDP/?utm_source=ig_tumblr_share&igshid=1gpyf9lhah75h
