my friend barb had me do this illustration of her dog, snowy. my first go at it i had my usual trademark black outlines around the entire dog. barb asked me if i could take out the black lines as they didn't make her look soft & fuzzy like she should. so i tried it... using slight white outlines and i think the results turned out great. i'm glad she brought it up as i plan to render many more fuzzy pets in the future!
