Chase Your Dreams by WildFire41 Chase Your Dreams by WildFire41
Wow, my eyes burn. It's 3 in the morning and that is a helluva lot of white.

This is a gift for a great friend of mine who moved in 4th grade and we're still in contact. She needs a good Christmas gift, so I drew her favourite breed of dog with green eyes, because her favourite colour is green. Then, of course, it's Christmas, so the scene is wintery. I'm gonna get this printed and framed for her and everything.
Then, I am going to do something for her sister. Twin sister. I was never actually very close with her, but she still deserves something. She like ducks, penguins, moose and the colour yellow. Huh.

I liked painting this, it looks better than my first painting I tried. I'm tired. And cold. And tired...and cold. So I'm going to bed under a nice 4 layers of blankets.

ArtŠ Me. Do not repost, claim as your own, trace, heavily reference, steal or alter in any way. Or I'll call the cyberpolice and consequences will never be the same.

The golden retriever is not any specific character, so you can copy if you want, I guess. It's only one base colour |:

Damn. You know, a snowy landscape is one of those things that challenge a lot of artists because it's very difficult to make a big pile of white "pop." But you did it. You're such a great artist. =B

Aww, nice job, the brushwork looks really nice :heart: critique wise I'd say the pose looks a tiny bit funny and I think a cooler bluer blue for the sky would of worked better but altogether you've done a great job and I can tell you put a lot of effort into this. :) So good job! :D

Thank you! Coming from you, I know I'm doing something right xD <3 And though I do agree with the sky colour, I wanted to do something that stood out more from the snow and complemented the blue shading on teh dog c: Thanks again, I love critiques x3

This is beautiful :D I lvoe the snow; it's so smooth yet sparkly 8D The colors you used on the dog and the overall painterly look have to be my favorite parts though. That color for the shading looks amazing with the golden fur ^^ I also enjoy the clouds. This is win :dummy:

Hnnnng I had a lot of fun with it. Maybe too much xD I appreciate what you said c| I tried to choose a colour that complemented the character colour, and since it was golden I decided on a blue. Plus, it looks nice with the snow 8D Thank you again <3

It's a very unique and well-planned picture, but there is a couple of things I would like to point out. First off, if you look at the front legs, they seem a bit wide, especially compared to the hind legs. If you look at a picture of a real golden, you'd see that they actually have fairly thin legs. The next point I'd like to come to is the muzzle. It seems a bit crooked. For that angle, the nose should be more toward the middle, and show a slight bit of the right side of the head. Other than these, it's really a beautiful piece.

Actually, if you look closely(You have to see the full size), the nose and muzzle are fine, I just have to fix the head. I'm having trouble with this for some reason, so it looks oddly skewed xD. And as for the legs, I simply saw them as being thick compared to the body, so that's what I drew c: I like thick legs <3 I appreciate the critique, though and thanks for the comment 8D
