Maltesecret Santa by Capukat Maltesecret Santa by Capukat
Such an amazing title *shot
So we have this Secret Santa (renamed Secret Snowflake) in art class and I had to draw for this guy named Jeff. Well I don't exactly know the guy and had no clue what to do. Asking his friend/my friend if he had a favorite animal, she replied that she didn't know.
So after some unfruitful facebook stalking and whatnot, I inquired if he had any pets.  So in the end we were kinda bummed out..

But she's a mad genius and when he walked in, just asked 'openly' to the class, "Does anyone have a pet?"
And you know the rest... c;

But yeah! I hope he wasn't joking about having a Maltese, sounded pretty legitimate... so here is the dog! Good thing all Malteses look more or less the same XD 
This was originally just going to be simple and have a white background but since the Maltese is white, that didn't look as well as it would've had it been another color. So as usual I jump to my blues/greens and just did random splotches and dripping XD Lol, my go-to improvisation background. Always looks nice and is so easy to do! :dummy:

My teacher also had me matte (is that the right word?) this XD So it has a 2 inch matteboard frame.. I have a feeling I'm thinking of a different "mat/matte"
Enjoy!

DRAW ON!

Ugh I just love the splash of colors in the background and the way you incorporate the background colors into the dog! I really think the way you shade looks amazing and it really seems like you've been doing a lot of traditional artwork recently and you can really see how much you're improving as a result.
