This is the first time that I've done any drawing with the computer programs and I'm really happy with it. I actually drew the heads and scanned the image in as a JPEG. I opened the JPEG up in Fireworks8 and added the color. Brazen (the merle dog) was the easiest as I had a picture of her, but the others I had to do from memory or a small pic I found on the web.
It was a fun project and worth the time whether they use it or not. I've forgotten how much fun my art can be and I've really got to do more.
Updated: Here is another version. This one looks a little more finished.
