It had to happen... a much more detailed and personalised portrait of Shelley :love:
She's obsessed in dandelions... she finds them and noms them. We were initially worried and looked it up... apparently dandelions are good for dogs because they help with their livers... who would have thought?
Anyway, you can catch the tutorial of this over on VectorTuts+, very detailed tutorial on how create this long multi tone fur which is a similar method to say doing short hair for portraits. As well as how to create quicky dandelions!
From my own stock the image of Shelley and dandelions were reference free.
100% Vector in AI CS5 :D
