Ernie! by LanieJ Ernie! by LanieJ
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. :XD:)Turning him in to a cartoon-y thing was really difficult, though. :XD: 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. :XD:. 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. :XD:

Thank you so much!! And I seriously do that with everything! Cats are kittens, dogs are puppies, and everything else gets extra E's at the end. Like Horsey and Birdie. :XD:

Aww! He looks like a real cutie!
You are lucky to own a dog. <3 I love German Shepherds, they are such beautiful dogs.
My grandparents just got one recently, and my cousins adopted a puppy a few months ago too!
But my grandparents' dog, Nikki, loves to chase the birds around the yard, and takes the exact same path to check for squirrels in the tree everytime she leaves the garage. She's made her path in the snow all padded down. x3
