Number 1a - While considering what I wanted to create, I carefully looked back at the work of both Gabriel Moreno and Stephen Bliss. The main thing that I could see that matched both of the artist’s pieces was that they both had an animal aspect with a human in it, Moreno with the woman and the donkey and Bliss with the bunny and the woman.

The Final Outcome - I've really enjoyed the experience of merging both these artists together and I like the outcome of how they look. I can understand the difficulty that both these artists faced during the creation process of their respecive pieces and I respect their admiration for their work and I can now understand that the work of an artist is quite hard and it's not easy to come up with a piece from the start which I can relate to from coming up with my own personal piece.

Number - I felt so frustrated with myself because I never made sure that the paint was totally dry and the ink never ran the way that I wanted it to but it was too late to fix but after I let it dry, I realised that it didn't look so bad after all.

Number 12a - The last thing that I needed to do was to paint the background. Firstly, I used cream acrylic paint and lightly painted around the body and left it to dry for a while. I thought that everything was going fine and that the paint was drying when I splashed the ink on the paper to find out that it was still wet.

Number 11 - I managed to finish off the dog's face and couldn't help but think of how scary the face actually looked which I guess is an achievement because I managed to fully capture the image of Bliss' work. I am amazed at how I managed to accomplish this due to me not being a fan of the darkness but I'm happy that I stuck with it.

Number 10 - The next order of business was to start adding the detail to the dog's face. Because I'm not used to doing the fur on animals, I found it diffcult even when looking at the picture I created but while thinking about how to do it, I realised that the animals in Bliss' artwork never have fur fully shown on his work so yet again I managed to avoid any stress.

Number 9 - Next I started using the black ink for the background to help create the dark atmosphere of this side of the piece. Due to me not really being so keen on working on the darkness, I found it quite challenging with doing the upper half of it but I eventually pulled through and kept thinking back and referencing the differences between both Bliss' and Moreno's work and why I liked them in the first place.

Number 8 – Using the black ink, I painted the dog’s snout, eyes, lips and teeth. I also added black ink to create the tone of her neck and did the same for the left shoulder to create the creases of the clothing. Again, I found this to be quite easy and relaxing as I had portrayed the dog’s face shape perfectly. I’m so glad that by messing up originally, this has helped me to make it better and I’m therefore thankful that I messed up to begin with.

Number 7 – I then used a purple, blue and black biro pen to add even more detail, for some reason this was my favourite part due to how loose I could be with the pen’s and how good it is for adding details on the clothing. Due to how chaotic my working process was before, this helped calm me down a bit due to how easy the movements of the pens were and how they didn’t have to look perfect which is a bonus for me because I work better when things don’t need to be perfect looking.
