~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


This is NOT a photo, I PAINTED it myself in photohop!


....it's finally finished! :faint: This took me roughly a month to do. But I did procrastinate a lot.. Let me tell you, having to do all those hairs, one by one.. that can drive you nuts!! D=
XD I love his face! He always looks at me like this when he wants something. (mostly a cookie) X3 He's such a cutie! :love:

This is my dog, Miles. He's a Shih Tzu / Maltese mix. He actually turned 4 years old today! ^-^ :party: (what a coincidence that I happen to finish this today.)
Anyways, the reason for this portrait:

My mom saw my Sky Sanctuary background that I was working on and she asked me if I couldn't make something for her. She suggested Miles and mentioned she would love to hang it on the wall somewhere.
It was a huge thing for me to hear her ask me that! :happycry: My dad never shows an interest in my art.. and otherwhise he doesn't even believe that I made it myself.. my mom tries sometimes.. but having her ask me this really means a lot to me.
But I told her that realism is very hard for me and that I couldn't. I felt bad about that.. so I looked for a photo of Miles and I found one that I thought maybe I could do. (he's roughly a year old here. His hair is a little longer now and he has a bit less color too. But you'll never believe me when I tell you that he was totally black with dark brown when he was a puppy!)
I decided I'd make this for her birthday and have it be printed out on canvas.^-^
(her birthday is still a little while away, January 8th, acutally 2 days after my own.) So now it will be a total surprise since she's not expecting it!

I just really hope she likes it and that it will still look good when it's printed out on canvas.
I hope you all like this little portrait too. I have to say I'm very proud of myself! It really looks A LOT like the photo reference I used. Looking at it I still can't believe I actually pulled this off.^^;

^^; well I didn't think I'd be able to do it either.. but I did.

XD; no way! I don't even have enough time to finish my own things. Besides it's no fun if someone else makes your art for you. ;)

HOLY COW. I seriously did think this was a photo (you must have known people would, otherwise you might not have specified in the title). I can see how that would take an insane amount of time. I applaud you for your patience. Haha. I know I'd never get to finishing a project like that... XD

yeah^^; some thought it was a photo so didn't care.
But I spend so much time and effort on this I wanted people to know it's not just a photo, I actually made it. Hence the title. X3
thank you^^
I didn't think I had the patience either. XD but I pulled it off somehow.

I know this will be late, but Holy mother of....WOW. I'm speechless by how realistic this looks. I gotta say, this looks as if you took a photo of your dog himself and just submitted it...

I'd have thought this would take longer but...Wow. You've got talent, in every sense of the word. Keep it up!

I shaded it the way it looked in the reference photo and then I took another photo of one of the tiles in the livingroom so I could use it as a texture.
I applied it to the shaded layer, painted over it some more, and you get this as a result.^^

This is absolutely beautiful and extremely realistic!
That look is so perfect and you'd think it really was a photo, because my own Shih-tzu gives me this look when she wants me to carry her <3!
You are truly talented!

I mean sometimes things look the way I expect, but other times they turn out even better than I could have ever hoped for, and yet other times it looks horrible. X3;

I like to call it lack of inspiration, whether you know what to do or not means nothing if you aren't inspired to create.
