ooffda, this bugger took a while. i love english setters so much because of their hair and anatomy. but drawing them is a different story. this is Max (maxy waxy!!!). he is 3 yrs old i think. i love this dog. hes a rare color for his breed too (chesnut). gonna prob. to do him again soon for my friend/owner with his other setter too.

as someone who draws a lot i understand how time consuming a picture like this would take. that might be why i love it so much, its by far one of (if not) the best drawings ive seen on this WHOLE website, congrats and keep up all the awesome artwork. :D

woow, amazing work! :clap: I love English setters, we had one, Jalta, but she died last year. :( she had some kind of tumour, she could have been operated but she wouldn´t stand the narcosis, because she was too old.

the chestnut color, you mean white and chestnut instead of tricolor? Jalta was that color too!

wow. this is amazing.
my auntie gave me a picture of her dog that passed on, wanting me to do a portrait of him.
haven't really got around to it yet.
but i'm pretty sure it wouldn't even compare to this.
the detail on the face is just perfect.
