His name is Dallas and he passed away recently. The buyer is doing this as a Christmas present for his owner.

Will post the WIP in a bit.

What a beautiful dog. He looks very huggable. I'm sorry he died. Please pass on some 'kiwi' condolences.

Congratulations, Ginger. Hope things start looking up for you, whatever your troubles. Haven't been on much lately so must have missed something on that. What a beautiful dog. Good luck with him.

Thanks Carol... I was in the hospital. Had emergency surgery for a perforated colon. Am slowly recovering, but due to the surgery I will be unable to go back to work for about 3 months. It is great to get some art commissions to make ends meet..

Here is the second WIP installment:

I really like this effect - it looks true to the individual personality of this dog, and yet it is loose and stylized too. Great work!

I merged the two threads together. So people can see the start and the finish.
Please keep it all in one thread.
Thanks

I'm glad they liked it and great news that a few commissions seem to be heading your way - funny how adversity can sometimes turn into a positive
