chase by luve chase by luve
so i rescanned and rescanned and finally just got FED UP and used the photoshop paint tool to bump up the lost greens and blue and kill some of that red. the marks from it are apparent but this is a much better representation of the colors than if i had left it alone. i swear.
the subtler color changes in his fur are still off, but eh. hopefully seeing the real thing wil make up for this horrid scan XD

anyway. commission from karwood/shadowolf at ac of his awesome blue tick coonhound chase! hope he likes it :]
used LOTS of offwhite pencil for this one. and those trees don't look so much like green mashed potatoes in real life...

beautiful colors and the pose and details

I love blue ticks and this guy just about sums up everything I love about them! What a good ol' hound dog! :)

Did you use watercolor for this?

Haha this is an awesome picture alright. : D I LOVE everything about this, the pose and expression in this is amazing. Scanners can be frustrating, mine started scanning stupidly after a couple of scanning. Never ever buy a scanner printer. XP

I think this is, technically, one of your best illustrations yet. there is a lot of depth and the composition is very well done. Also, the dog is drawn with such strong personality!
really, you've done a wonderful job on this!

:giggle: I can just hear the banjo playing in the background!

You have such a way with canines, as I've said before. You've captured such personality here. He looks like a no-good layabout, that gets given out to by his wife or... mother or something, ehehe!

The colours in this make it look very warm, like a dry heat. Sleepy and hazy, just like Chase's brain!

Awn, trees are really fine!
I hate when my scanner ruins my drawings, too, but I think it's gorgeous, btw :clap:
LePipsqueak Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2007
Aaah. . .the epitome of repose, amidst empty jugs and wayward wheels.

It's a shame the scanner caused you such trouble. )B ...If anything, the picture came out lovely. And the green mashed potato--I mean, trees look just fine. :3

So relaxing ^^ after a hard day it would be great to take your leg up like there :D :D
bratz367 Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2007
Haha, great pose. :) I love his nose. And I think the colors look nice.
papilionette Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2007
I actually like how you rebuffed the colors back and stil left a little 'seen'. It just seems to make the picture look older. I love the texture of it and the concept.
