I made these dogs over a two week period in between other tasks. We have a lot of stray dogs looking for homes here, so I called this collection not just for Christmas. The idea was to show dogs doing the things that dogs do best! If you have never had a dog it can come as a shock when they rip up your stuff and play fight with their mates. They also love rolling in mud and showing the world their private bits! The howling can be really loud if they feel they are being left behind.
The dogs are not meant to be any particular breed, I adopted two rescue dogs of my own and was inspired by their antics. I also use a one stroke approach to fur painting but didn’t realize that there are tutorials for this kind of thing on YouTube. I could have saved myself a lot of time trying to work this out, lol!
The dog standing on his back legs is given stability by over large feet and his tail. The rolling dog has an armature so I was able to give it a twist.
