Of course, it's not a dog or pet. I swear, I tried! I hacked away at trying to draw a dog with my tablet, and then gave up. Once I resorted to doodling, this is what I came up with...
I like it. It has some issues, but it's a start.
Sorry to be breaking rules and whatnot. I'll keep trying to draw dogs, I promise! I just needed to share that I actually did something.
ETA: I'm willing to hear criticism! I do recognize a lot of issues on my own (can't shade worth crap, couldn't draw legs so omitted them, etc.), but I am still open for advice and tips to improve!
