The expression and pose remind me of an alert dog waiting for something to do.  Pretty character and fantastic lighting :)

well here's the little floof again! Gin? I don't know why but I am pleased with the long tail. looks nice. Beautiful composition. 

The steps link is really fun to see! Its interesting to see how the piece evolved from lines. 

.... paw finger claws. HOW 

interesting no thumbs

aaagh so cute

how big would he be next to a human? Close to a dog immitating a horse? XD Or perhaps something like a GreyHound?

Yep, that's her again! :>
Her design is still in development, so her paws are definitely something that I'm not quite sure about how I'd like them to look like. Here I was going for something that was inspired by the look of skinned dog paws without the dewclaws. I still like the look of that, though I don't like that it looks a bit weird without the dewclaw or a thumb. Maybe I'm going for 5 fingers next time if I draw her - so it has kind of a bear-claw look. :B
She isn't that big in size (there's a small size comparison on her Ref here), so she can easily go through doors and stuff.  c:

The texture, lights and shadows are gorgeous in this piece! I really like the composition, too. The process shots were really interesting to look at, too. 
Great work!

I adore your character. :heart:
So did you render the background in 3D or did I get it wrong? ^^"
dschunai's avatar
thank you Leu! ^-^
everything is drawn in Photoshop; i don't have any 3D programs.
