Thanks... He was a tough one to do,...since I had to constantly stare at his sad face as I created him... I almost felt guilty.....almost....heh!

The better the referances the better of a piece you can make no matter the skill. :)

But this does blow my mind. You have truely captured the subtle emotions and important details and how expressive the whole piece turned out to be. I have to say you have really inspired me.

Thanks so much! Working from photo-reference as I do,..I really strive to try to make each piece "my own" some of my earlier (or hasty) works sometimes unfortunately show just how "photo-ie" the working references are... But my intention is to go back and truly paint them entirely, so that any "roughness" in them goes away..

Thanks again for the compliments...

i really admire this piece. it does look realistic. the subject - the instinct nature of a starving dog enhances, from the nice lighting and detailed coloring, and the facial expression enhances the realism. i love the eyes, and his mouth - pain is really expressed well. i like how the subject can be viewed as seperate entities - not just a blend of two species, but can be seen as a simple dog and a simple human.

mmkay i'm done rambling.

Thank you! Yeah,..subtle emotion is not easy to capture,..especially when you are trying to keep realism going with animal faces. But boy,..sad-eyed dogs sure do make it easier!

Thanks so much! He was a fun one to do, and I was able to work from some excellent photo reference shot by a friend of mine who lives in Thailand. Other elements of the image came from photographic stock I have collected or taken myself over the years,..and has been incredibly useful in putting together the reference pieces I generate to paint from digitally...

It really is a fun and enjoyable process I've been getting into recently..
