PEEP #5 NELLY
NELLY's formal name is Melissa, but we call her "NELLY" short, for the nickname NOSEY NELLIE. I actually started to write and illustrate a children's book after this character. Nelly is a very special dog. She has had chronic urinary problems since birth and so she requires extra attention and care, but Mom loves her all the same. She looks most like a german shepard, with longer hair. Nelly is kind of tucked back in the original photo but I tried to pull her out in my illustration.
Well the first draft of all 5 dogs is done. Tons of work to do, but I can say that I think I am getting better at this.
