PCA Illustrated Standard Debacle ~ Part 4

If you are just now coming into this series late you can read part 1, part 2 and part 3 to catch up.    Today I have done comparisons on full body drawings of the correct markings section of the standard.   Apparently, in addition to only being able to draw ear and tail sets so many ways, there are also only “so many ways” you can draw markings on a Papillon.    I think it’s safe to say that anyone that has been in Papillons for even 5 minutes would find this laughable.

I’m also getting much better at being able to resize the items for even better alignment.    I wish I could manage to get scans of both at the same size so that no resizing would be necessary.  That would be eye-opening, no doubt.

Like in previous posts we will be seeing both originals and then the comparison.

I’m not really sure how many more of these are necessary to make the point that this goes well beyond being able to draw a dog only a certain way and into little more than tracing existing images.   If anyone has a particular image from the IS that they want me to compare, I’ll be happy to do that.

    Thank you again Towal! I see something interesting besides the comparison of identical markings. In comparing the outline of my drawing to Carlson, I see a slight difference in how he represented the coat fringing on the chest, underline, and front leg feathers with hatching lines. I believe it was stated that the drawings on the 2014 on line IS were taken from the Carlson originals. However in comparing mine with the third drawing, I see the line drawing of the coat on the chest etc is much more like my original than Carlson’s. The third version actually uses the same outline that is in my drawing and adds a bit of the hatching lines from Carlson. So I interpret that as having been copied first from my drawings….not taken directly from what Carlson did as was stated in Mr. Ray’s letter to the PCA members regarding the deletion of the IS from the web site.

    My previous post was incorrect. I was confused by the comparison drawing. It shows only my drawing and Carlson’s followed by the overlay comparison…not the newest version. My apology for the brain slip!
