FWF: Kiss


This is a tough post for me. I had been working on this for a while because the coloring takes me a LONG time. I don't have all the colors I wish I had and my local store keeps the limited selection they have under lock and key, so I always end up ordering them. The actual coloring and figuring out shadows takes a while because it doesn't come naturally.

I think dog fur is challenging to color, plus my dogs are kind of nappy and I was trying to make the image somewhat realistic. That dog above looks way more groomed than my dogs ever have- they hate being brushed. I set this aside for the night so I could think about it. This morning we woke up to find that our youngest dog had passed on. He was as neurotic as they come, but he loved the daylights out of us. I'm sure he was God's example to us of how to truly love.

Goodbye, Jack. We love you.

Hi Sarah! I'm so sorry to hear about Jack. I've never had dogs but my friend is so attached to hers, so I understand it must be so hard.
Your card is the Sweetest! I think you have all the right colours for the image, and you did well!! I find it equally hard to colour the dog fur, but most times I try not to think too much about lighting and do what feels right to me. Good job, and I look forward to see more of your colouring, Sarah. Have a lovely weekend! {hugs}
