All right, you guys wanted canines. I give you... My puppy!! Well, he's really 3 years old now, but I consider him a puppy, still. This is Ernie. He's a purebred GSD (German Shepherd Dog) and I love him to death. He's a total doofus sometimes. I mean, he's intelligent, just... goofy. He usually scares people because this is usually how he introduces himself: (Yes, I took that, and yes, I did get hurt.
)Turning him in to a cartoon-y thing was really difficult, though.
As I'm sure you can tell, I tried a LOT of new things on this one. I did a little bit of cut out shading, which I think I might do more of. I like it.
Here's a close-up of his FACE: [link]
, and here's a couple pictures of us together, if you're curious (They're a couple years old. My face isn't that chubby anymore and my hair is WAY longer and... better. AND I'm over the crazy colors make up.
. Wow. These are all terrible... Sorry about that.):[link] [link] [link] [link]
As usual, this was drawn by mouse. Yes, really. My hands HURT.
Anyway, I hope you like this! One more commission and a zillion christmas gifts are coming next!
I'll try and get a more recent picture of this guy and me. We both look a lot better, now. I promise.
