Doing a commission for :iconrainylake: featuring two African Wild dogs. As a bonus I though I would make a portrait of the two of them :)


I have to say I have really come to love these beautiful African Wild dogs while working on this. They are so beautiful, their fluffy mane, characteristic color patterns , big ears and particular their special eyes have really mesmerized me.


These beauties are unfortunately endangered.

The detail here is astounding - I'm especially impressed with the detail in the fur around their necks and ears!

It is. I hope to one day see some in the wild. Hoping real hard. I guess if things dont change that will be almost impossible soon :( Thank you! Their fur pattern were a real challenge. So im quite proud of those actually! Good practice :)
