All Dogs Go To Heaven

"All dogs go to heaven, because unlike people, dogs are naturally good, and loyal and kind."

Like he had for so many others, Dogbomb has touched my life & inspired me since my introduction to him nearly a decade ago. I was very moved this week to create a piece in tribute to him, I'm only sorry I couldn't get to it sooner. 

 I guess I don't talk about my interests publicly very much, but one of my absolute favorite things is to recreate a style as closely as possible within my artwork for things like this. I love recreating fursuit maker styles in my reference commissions. I loved doing the Lion King & Lisa Frank icons for my friends. I loved the project I did in college recreating other artist styles with my character. There's something so enjoyable and challenging about getting it as close as possible without just directly tracing it. Its something I hope to do more in the future.  Even this image is not very close, as I changed the proportions and made the eyes bigger to help it look more natural. 

I wanted to create an illustration based on All Dogs Go To Heaven because, well, its just so obvious. What could be a more perfect fit for a German shepherd mutt who lived a full and courageous life? ADGTH is a really cherished movie within the furry fandom, and I hoped the familiarity of this image could bring comfort, as well as a sense of love and nostalgia to those who are mourning his loss.

I'm planning to submit this to an artist zine raising money for ALS. I may also do prints of it with all proceeds donated to the ALS association.

By the way, here was the image I used for reference, if anyone is curious to see.

If you keep hearing about this "Dogbomb" person and are a bit confused, I recommend reading this article , this post he made many years ago, or checking out his Twitter.

He seemed absolutely convinced he was going to keep going after things ended, so I like to think he's seen this tribute, and is deeply touched by it. May he rest in peace.
