Mishya by Ahkward Mishya by Ahkward
Colored sketch commission for SpetsnazKaz of their dog/character Mishya. :D I wasn't quite sure what to do with the Background, so I went with the Russian flag and the hammer and sickle since it appeared in many of your references. I kept it simple so the details of it wouldn't overtake the character. I also wanted to draw that sword too since I almost never get to draw those. lol

I simply cannot thank you enough for this picture. :faint:

You got all of his details right, even more so than many other artists have done in the past and that is just amazing to me. And the fact that you went above and beyond to include various details about him. The KGB uniform, the East German sword, Aeroflot globe, the modern Russian flag, and the hammer and sickle emblem is all there, included in this one picture. This has to be one of my favorite commissions of him to date. 

Thanks again! :cuddle:

Aha, I'm so glad you are happy with it! I really wanted to be sure this was awesome for you. You've been incredibly patient and deserved the extra effort! All the references you included helped tremendously with making sure I could get the details. Since I honestly don't know a lot about Russian emblems and such I wasn't sure I got everything right. I'm very relieved to know it has your approval!

Thanks for ordering again and I enjoyed working on this for you! :la:

Ah okay, I'm really glad you were thinking about me when you did this! :D
Because I wasn't expecting something this perfect, like oh my god this is wonderful is so many ways. I really love that you included all those elements, like I said because it shows multiple traits about his character. And don't worry, you did really good with the details and such with very little mistakes to speak of. The hammer-and-sickle is a little bit wrong, but it doesn't take away from the picture because its easy to tell what it is and like that it's stylized a bit. 

This is my new phone wallpaper. ;p

I know it is horizontal. However it looks better as vertical as far as composition.
