Block-in sketch of handmade dog treat toy

Daily Art 01-29-18 block-in practice of handmade dog treat toy

I’ve been listing a bunch of handmade dog accessories in my Etsy shop lately and this little dog treat toy caught my eye as a good block-in sketch subject. It’s sort of like preliminary figure drawing practice.

Initially the sketch was too narrow, so when it was roughly blocked in I needed to go wider with it. My favorite part of the toy in real life is the ears — and it’s my favorite part of this sketch, too.

Since I make these by hand, they’re not all perfectly symmetrical, and those imperfections add more charm and character to these little guys.
