Sometimes after a long day, you just want to come home to a cuddle buddy. Something with lovable eyes, puffy ears, and a cute little face. That’s where Sissy the Yorkie-silky comes into play. This darling little pooch was a pet portrait for a happy dog lover. Someone who appreciates the importance of a canine listener, who will hear all your woes without judgment, eagerly play ball to distract you from your daily worries, and give you all the doggy affection she has.

Sissy has a great mix of light and dark fur coloring around her face. Like a soft glowing halo atop her head, Sissy’s fur on the crown of her head is much lighter and reflects lights. A lot of this fur was created by applying light layers of yellows and oranges and then erasing thin wisps, allowing the white paper underneath to shine through. The darker fur around her mouth incorporated the same oranges and yellows as well as darker browns and blues.
