View Full Version : Achilles - dog portrait
This is the first comission I have had for a long time. I had fun painting him and hope he will bring me some more.

Very realistic work. He appears to be alive. However, the collar may be a bit distracting?

Well done Deanna, the eyes are perfect. A slightly shinier nose would bring it forward more, nit-picking really, it's perfectly beautiful as it is.
Your feedback is always welcome :)

You remind me why I love pastel...those rich colours in the fur are delicious!

Terrific work with the dog! Keeping strong darks is a challenge you've accomplished, and brought in some rich color to keep them vibrant.
The background may keep pace with a bit more with overall richer or darker greens, but it's just a thought.

Lovely, I love the eyes especially! My only suggestion would to be to brighten the background a bit so that he stands out a bit more.

Nice job on a difficult perspective!
He was fun to paint

What a cutie! And so well done too - his joyful personality really shines through in this painting.
