Grumpy and Dopey

2018 edit: I've watermarked all of my old work because they're constantly stolen, sorry they're huge and ugly! 

A medium quality illustration for :iconfey-light: her friends as german shepherds! This was a pretty fun order to work on and it was refreshing to paint a dog instead of a wolf for once (i do love my wolves doe)
Thank you so much for ordering this, I really appreciate it! 

I struggled with many aspects of this piece, mostly with the background. I don't believe I've drawn an autumn-y forest before, so the colors were new to me and it was challenging to use them. The trees were difficult at first but adding the leaves was enjoyable :)

Gorgeous artwork.Love all the fall colors and that light shining through trees in background looks really good. They both look so realistic

I don't know if you've read it, but it looks like Kainan and Raimo from Asmundr/Home! It's a webcomic->…
Your art is gorgeous! *-*

Do you perhaps give any tutorials for canine models (how to do the muzzle/ears/body/eyes), shading/fur textures, and backgrounds?

What program do you paint in?

Do you take point Comms?
Nice ones but I think you should make them with dark brown eyes since blue eyed ones are a major fault.  :P

Thank you! :) And hahah I agree, blue would be a major fault! But these are kind of fantasy dogs and they're based off of people, so they've got their people-version's eyes :D
