My daughter's family dog died a few weeks ago and she asked me to paint a picture of him. He chased a kangaroo into a dam and the kangaroo pushed him under and Simba drowned. He was just a big pup, 15mths old. The pink on his nose is zinc cream to protect him from skin cancer as he was susceptible to sunburn.

I'm also showing the ref I used.

You painted a very sweet portrait.

Very nice work! I thought the pink was kinda loud, so I'm glad you explained what it was.

It's always sad to lose a pet; it's nice that you were so able to make such a beautiful memorial portrait for your daughter.

You have brought back those memories for many of us. Reminds me of Elvis and old Shep. Hope he joined Old Shep.

So sorry for the loss of Simba. You made a beautiful portrait of him. Your daughter will love this portrait. I guess you can not fool around with kangaroo's.

Thanks everyone - yes it is sad but I guess the kangaroo's instinct was to protect his mob and the young dog was just having a bit of fun that ended badly.
