German shepherd dog.
Might be printed on postcards.

I don't like german shepherds, to be honest...
They're just not my kind of dog..

Vision: Well first off, I LOVE your fur. This is just a great drawing with so much to offer in the ways of highlights and shading!!

Originality: The pose, though just a side view, is practical and shows much of the animal. You can get a lot from this, from anatomy, to fur direction, and paws. I LOVE the paws. Something I have always had trouble with.

Technique: As I have said before I love the fur. Just how you shaded, and the pattern its in, blows me away. All the detail and depth you give it! It really looks 3D like you could touch it. It has a very "grabable" feeling of perspective. Only thing I could say to work on is the pose. For a character ref this is EXCELLENT to show off patterns, markings, and such, but other then that, I would say a ¾ view would be more “fun” to look at :D

Over all I love this. You have a very unique style that is so fun to see and work with. Thank you so much for this excellent drawing! :heart:

This is the most epic, awesome, and beautifully detailed drawing of a German Shepherd I've ever seen! I am a HUGE fan of GM shepherd's and you did an awesome job of capturing every detail! The face looks so realistic, the paws are realistic, and the body posture is magnificent! I give this piece of art five stars on everything because it is so beautifully drawn! I also love how you put the tones on the fur. I think that anyone who sees this deviation should give it five stars cause it deserves them. Keep up the awesome work!

Um just wondering could I possibly use this as part of a company logo? I kind run a very small company called "Baddog Games Co." and this would work greate in the logo. :)

Ik heb eigenlijk wa schrik da als ik een hond uit het asiel haal dat die heel onevenwichtig is en dak er te veel werk aan heb en dat die mijn katten dood bijt... :( Is mss een verkeerd beeld van de hondjes int asiel.

Holarctic Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Een heel verkeerd beeld. Alle honden worden op voorhand gescreened en er word dan gekeken of de hond thuis past in het gezin. Ook word er in het asiel zelf uitgeprobeerd of de hond met katten overweg kan.
Dus het is echt niet zo dat ge gewoon eender welke hond kunt en moogt meepakken naar huis. ;)

Op vrijdag avond ben ik altijd in het asiel. Maar de bezoek uren zijn van 3 tot 6. Als je eens wil langskomen laat me dan iets weten!
Of als je op een andere namiddag of zo eens wil komen ga ik graag met je mee!

Ma je kan nie weten of die helemaal gezond zijn en tegoei gefokt. Wordt er ook naar de heupen enzo gekeken?

Deze vrijdag kan ik niet, ik zal zien of ik volgende vrijdag kan, of een andere dag :D

Natuurlijk wel. Alle honden worden door een dierenarts nagekeken en ingeŽnt en zo voorts. ;)
Het dierenasiel is echt niet zo slecht en primitief als velen denken hoor.

We hebben nu 2 duitse herders zitten. Murphy en Linux.

ik heb alleen katten vant asiel gehaald. allemaal schatten van beestjes. Misschien kan ik Andreas overhalen om ooit een hond uit het asiel te halen. Eerst een job en huisje vinden :p

too awesome, but know that i relook at it over and over i think i found some problems, on the muzzle near the nose with the dts it looks like a huge big and the same on the neck, i also think the dogs right ear should be hind like, more out not just straight that you can't see inside a bit like you should see inside a bit but not a lot, and thats some little things i pointed out
