Mix-Ability challenge: Doodle Pug

This week's Mix-Ability challenge was to doodle - instead of doodling around a stamp image, I decided to draw one! I've been wanting to do a pug for a while - this one really makes me smile.

The image is printed on Kona paper, which was on clearance at Blick some time ago - it's made from recycled coffee bags, and that's just cool. I watercolored with Distress ink for the darker shading, and used Derwent Coloursoft pencils for the details.

Pugs and hugs - have a good weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Cute or what? I do admire your confident drawing skills Dina.

  2. Absolutely adorable, Dina!! I hope someday you will make this into an image. I know a few friend with pugs who would LOVE this on a card! Hugs!

  3. Dina ! this is so CUTE
    You really need to make this into a Rubber Stamp, and draw the rest of the dogs too. I love that Pink Bow ! Thank you for sharing xo

  4. What a sweet girlie pug:-) Hugs, Nancy

  5. So cute. Your drawing is impeccable. Please, when you start making stamps of dogs, the Silkie would be my choice.

  6. I got so excited when I saw this cute pug. I said to myself, I have GOT to have that stamp. Well, you tricked me big time and also caused some disappointment as I would love to have that little pug to stamp some cards with. You drew it perfect! It is did I say perfect! Please make it into a stamp for the rest of us to enjoy. Thanks

  7. The cutest little pug with it's big pink bow,
    Adorable ! TFS

  8. I Love it, Dina! I was trying to tell my husband, the kind of dog Nanny had when I was a wee litte girl. And could never think of the breed, it was Pug, of course! LOL Too cute!! Paulette S.
