AJ versus Darko

My half of a trade with ~faithandfreedom. This is her Beauceron character Darko and her mutt character AJ. I experimented with adding cell shading to a colored sketch in this picture. :)

Commission information: [link]

Critiques warmly welcomed! I'd especially like advice on making dogs look breed-specific (does the Beauceron character really look like a Beauceron?).

Traditionally sketched, colored in openCanvas 1.1, shading and textures added in Photoshop CS4; I scanned the textures myself.
Time spent: A few days altogether.

yeah i used to show dogs and your Beauceron is spot on. there are the double due claws in back but you can't see those. just for future in case you ever draw another one.

I could tell from the drawing rather than the comment that is was a Beau rather than a Dobby, so great job :D Love the lighting and colouring!
