Painting gift for I'm thnking about doing another picture to that song, but with Emma, cause it reminds me of myself. Anyway, I hope you like it, Tara. c: I can ship this to you whenever I get something to ship it in, lol.
Materials used: 8 by 10 canvas and acrylic paint I was thinking about taking commissions for these paintings after I finish the digital ones. Would anyone be interested?
This piece is absolutely beautiful. I've always loved your style. It never ceases to amaze me. But, I guess for some reason, I wanted to write a critique for you since you requested it.
Lets see... the texture of the fur on his neck and everywhere else is just beautiful. I love the shading and... just the texture in general. I couldn't paint like this if my life depended on it.
I love the frame of the dog's profile. The line art is great. The mouth and the nose look great as well.
The only thing that catches my eye is the... bluntness where the ear connects to the head. It just looks a little bit unnatural and like there is no fur on the ear or the head (I'm assuming there is suppose to be, but it could just be the character as well). I think if you used some strokes using the black blending in with the red a little, it'd look a little more natural.
Other than that, the background is just FLAWLESS. I absolutely LOVE how you did the background and the water. The sunset reflecting on the water looks so beautiful and natural, and your blending of white for the shine of the water is great. Also, the brush strokes you used for the tall grass looks great and natural as well!
Excellent job, Emma! I really enjoy this a lot. I hope you find this helpful. C:
