wow, thats probably the saddest looking dog i've ever seen, but its awesome!

elven-nell's picture

Why thank you! I did want the dog and the overall piece to have an "otherness," or not of this world.

I've never felt the urge to comment, but the way the upper skys play into the piece, i feel like this dog is from outer space, because his eyes are so intelligent and soulful looking. Laughing out loud

Thank you, Mayavan! I might do more pieces of a similar nature featuring dogs, as I've recieved such wonderful feedback on this piece.

Very nice piece - I like the subtlety you've used to render his coat, and his expression is lovely. Charming!

These are the true innocent brown dog eyes. Well done! And you did a perfect job with the coat! Lew.

Aww, thanks, Rob! I was a bit worried how they would look, but I'm pretty happy how they turned out. It was not easy! Thank you for your lovely comment. Smile

cudos for actually having the guts to draw the wiskers and get them just right - with a mouse! Hat off to you.

Thanks, Rochelle! You know, I'd love to get a wacom, if only I had the money. Wink I'm glad you like it, I wanted to capture a soulful expression on the dog.

Thank you, Tiina. Your comment is much appreciated Smile

Great, warm colours with this. And it has the sad sad eyes that I have always personally associated with this sort of dog. This is great for mousework, but you know, you REALLY should get a tablet, theres so much more flexibility with them Wink not that you appear to have been hindered by the mouse at all.

Hi !
Nice job done!
What I like the most in this image is the captured look in the eyes.

Art at its best.
