Water Time by eidolic Water Time by eidolic
Here is my probably one of my last commissioned dog portraits or commissioned anything for that matter. This measures 11x14" and is of a lab that loves the water as I'm told (like all labs :) ). I like how it turned out, however shrinking down the dog so it fits into the drawing entirely is not my style. Just having to work at it on a smaller scale is different for me.

I think commissioned drawings are really lacking the enthusiasm lately for me, and I think it shows in my quality of work. I'm just ready to start creating for myself basically. I have sold a few of my prized originals in recent times and just realized I need to go back and create like I did before I drew for others. and I need color in my life!! so I'm painting away right now! :) Thanks for looking!

wow! Love it, most Labs love water-time except the one that I had. She hated water. Don't really know why-I got her from the pound when she was about three months old. She died two years ago from kidney failure. She was 8 years old. Anyway my second dog loves water time! She loves when puddles form so she can jump through them. 

love the artwork you did a great job on them and yes do what you like for you first!

Except mine was a chocolate, this reminds me of my lab. However, he had one strange quirk for a lab. If his wading pool was not clean enough for him to See the Bottom, he would not use it. I had to dump it regularly so he could See the Bottom or else he'd whine at me and just stare at the pool. Most of the black labs I grew up with could have cared less about the cleanliness of the water, even seeming to prefer the yuckier the better.

Well done!

Wow, this is gorgeous!

I love the water, the riples are so realistic - and I know how insanely difficult it is to draw realistic water.
The dog's shading and anatomy (for the most part) are immaculate, and I love how you made his dark coat contrast against the water.

The only thing that looks a little bit awkward is the back leg from the knee down - It looks a tidbit skinny. Other than that, awesome drawing! :)
