Laika the dog by Adniv Laika the dog by Adniv
This is going to be a gift.
I wish it had turned out better ( :( ), but I guess I can blame my inexperience in drawing dogs...

Her name is Laika, she is a mix and is used for hunting.

I didn't use any blending (except background) in this one, just to see if I could do it...

Her expression is so soulful :)
I think there is something with the nostril that looks a little off somehow, but I can't figure out what it is... Maybe it is tilted more than the muzzle is? (If it is, it is only by a fraction.)
This is a truly gorgeous piece, and everthing flows so nicely! I especially like how her head seems to be popping out of the page due to your background setup :)

I can see now a couple of things I can change with the nose- I think that will help.

Well, thank you so much for thinking that! :D
If I knew exactly what should be different, I would already have changed it... :P
I guess the eyes should be "clearer" and I don't like the nose, plus in some places the fur is very random... :/
- But don't tell anyone this ;)

Totally agree. When I read that it made me want to hit my head on a wall because this is far better than I could do!!

How long did it take you?
