cartoon process - hello stranger!

This started off with the following cartoon below which was supposed to be a Golden Retriever greeting an alien....

...until my friend, who used to keep one of the breed, pointed out that it didn't look much like a retriever...

She sent me some links to some images, so I set about changing the dog while keeping the idea of the cartoon. Here is the new look retriever taking shape.

Having settled on a new style of retriever that I liked, I added a layer to the original cartoon while I worked on the finishing touches to the dog.
