The process of pet portraits

I just got done with a series of 4 pet portraits-2 were of dogs, 2 were of horses. Anyways, on the last one I decided to scan in every step just for funsies.

The beautiful mare is Stormy...and the kitty is Charlie.

First rough sketch:


Ink details added:



Shading and more details:
(realized I've drawn Stormy's muzzle a bit large..will fix in Photoshop)



Final Version:
(Color done in Photoshop. Customer wanted all in black and white except cat)

And that's that.
