I was taking pictures for Studio Friday and realized that I had my idea for Illustration Friday's topic of "sacrifice". My poor self-sacrificing standard poodle: Penny. As you can read in my Studio Friday post, she is my constant companion in my art room (when I'm there), although she much rather be playing soccer.
I was hoping to get more done than this quick pencil sketch, but farm work is eating up my weekend. I've included the photo that I snapped which triggered the idea. Enjoy!
