Thank you It's watercolor and colored pencil.
I like it too. The only thing that slightly bothers me is the lower jaw. Wouldn't the jowl partially cover it. I take it it's a bull mastiff?
I'm not sure about the lower jaw. This the photo I used for the reference.
I think it needs more shadow as it does stand out a fair bit. It's nowhere near as bright in your ref even allowing for the cast shadow removed.
i like the rim lighting in the photo. maybe darken the dog and punch up a rim light. might add more interest. also the collar looks awkward in the painting. it would also look better if it followed the contour like in the photo.
