Oh that's neat! I like the eyes the best I think.

I can't give you any tips because I don't know anything about painting! But I love it

Just remember there is no "special" way to do art or to render paintings, its all in your brain and in your eyes on what you see...Its a very beautiful painting...keep up the great work

I love the expression in his face. I don't much about painting/drawing, but I know others on the board may be able to give you some insight.

Don't you wish the dog could see how you see them..i hold my work up to them all the time and ask Hey whatcha think? They don't care..darn it! Your dog would be proud if he knew how you see the love in his eyes..just great!

If anybody wants a fun exercise to learn even more about their dogs..like we don't already..try to draw them using all planes..as if they were made of rectangles and triangles..one plane for each shift of the feature..it is fun if you don't get frustrated . You end up with a futuristic robot looking dog or cat. first..i had to do a person..you walk around feeling your face and feeling foolish at the same time..then i did a cat as well. My cats immediantly improved.(people i am still working on and not near hard enough either) This is an assignment that they give me in life drawing that i found useful. I will find mine soon and post it. I am sure it is around here somewhere. i am buried in pieces of paper at my desk so somewhere can be an ominous word.
its best to do with a pencil and eraser..starting with the largest planes and working your way into the smaller ones.. when you have it right they will all fit like a puzzle.
