Gouache sketch of a French Bulldog

French Bulldog gouache sketch illustration

I’m still not in love with this grey toned sketchbook, but it’s pretty good for gouache. It seems to help me get a full value range with the opaque media. But I don’t really like it for sketching with pencil because it’s too hard to see the lines. The paper is also quite smooth, and I prefer more tooth.

On the upside, the grey paper encouraged me to push this grey French Bulldog into blue territory, making it more stylized. I continued the illustration with my favorite little leaf doodles.
