Rupert the Belgian barge dog

I finally finished off the pastel of Rupert I started as a demo about a month ago.

He's got a really unusual fluffy coat that was fun to do.

23 x 28cms image

The photo I was using had Rupert looking cuddly and relaxed with his ears back. His owner asked if I could put them forward as this was more typical of Rupert. I'd usually say it wasn't possible as when a dog has it's ears forward the eyes and face shape are different to if it has them back but I think we got away with it here ( below). I just suggested his ears which works as they are usually partly obscured by fur anyway. 
Altered portrait -

Now he looks like he is ready to go on their  next big adventure!
