Thanks to all who joined the stream! Was long and fun :)
I quite like how this turned out. Original scanned image was huge so this is a smaller version. I improvised with the background but I hope you like it. :dummy:
This took forever but I especially like the faces on both.. chest fur on Kita (Aussie) in particular, and mouth for Sugar Bear (Pit Bull).. yes. The eyes were too much fun.. The brown on the tricolor Aussie is less noticeable but it's more so in real life I would say.. but yes!

The back came out a little short on Sugar Bear though but I don't want to ruin it at this point! :ohnoes:
Original looks better though haha 

DRAW ON!

Wow this looks fantastic, Celine!! I love the shadowing and small details throughout the piece. The background is done well because it allows the focus to be on the dogs/ foreground. Very, very nicely done :D

Looks amazing! I saw this painting in my inbox earlier today, and it inspired to paint at school. :hug: Thank you, Capu! :) I am sure A TON of other people have gotten this "boost" from your wonderful pieces.

And I agree so much! Random damaged brushes for adding textures are EPIC! I used a scissor to cut parts of a brush and it works so damn awesome. :la:

Again – wonderful work! Keep at it! ;)

Pit bulls are actually really nice dogs, if anything there more like big musclely teddy bears and as such I like this picture, it's cute.

The main reason pit bulls are feared by the general populace is of ignorance and human stupidity. They're just big babies when raised right.

Haha I agree. Most all behavioral issues in dogs and pets are caused by bad experiences with humans :(
