How friggin long did that sweet looking background take you? Great job!

Thank you Harry! It took me a while to get the angle of the muzzle - photo is from an odd angle - this dog sure as hell knows what to do with those teeth...(Not directed at me of course...but at all of my belongings!!)

Gorgeous Piece!

Thanks Susan! To be honest I did the bg when I didnt really feel like paying much attention to what I was doing - a lazy scratch but still helps get the urge out of the system!!
Thank you Karen :)

Susan, she did a similar background on my colobus monkey and I have that right in front of me and still can't work out how she did it!!! :confused:

That is brilliant!! You bloody legend!

lol He's smiling! Really well done...that background IS amazing!

Patrick, you said the b word!!

Eilis, this is one of the best dog scratches I have seen on here. Stunning. I feel like I know Indie as I have been following her antics on your f/b page. What a little terror.

But I am so glad you finally got around to scratching him. He was screaming out to be done.

Very very well done!!!!!!! And beautifully scratched!!!!

Very beautiful indeed Eilis,

Beautiful work Eilis, that mouth is amazing and I like the BG a lot.

Eilis...This is a SUPER piece. The photo you worked from seems perfect, given his propensity to get into a lil trouble. Top notch scratching..... Whoa!

Stunning work! The mouth is awesome!

Fantastic. Beautiful fur and dynamite eye. I can hear him panting.

I really like the job you did on this and the name of your dog so suits him. The backgound is nice and soft and even.

Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments!!!
There is nothing fancy about the bg - just a load of scribbles!!!!
Oh Rod...a little trouble doesn't do this guy justice...He constantly has his nose where it shouldnt be! But then I have always been attracted to trouble makers lol - must say more about me!!!
