I thought I recognized the style … and then I remembered. Jennifer? Oh, yes. My old nemesis who beat me out with her entry for the SCBWI contest : )

I especially like the texture in the pups body.

Their expressions are great. It's amazing what a difference colour and a few changes make. Well done.

Jen this is fabulous! Loved the little pug :-)
Both of them came out great...I just LOVE your work. Are they linocuts? or just an effect?

heehee! I got a chuckle out of this one!

Thanks everyone, Geninne this was done in photoshop but the technique is very similar to an lino cut. I just use the photoshop eraser tool instead of a lino cutter (it's easier on my fingers if I slip!)

Excellent technique! What is your medium?

Sweet Pea said...

This is great! Love their expressions, those glowing orange eyes give me the shivers!

carla said...

Excellent! I really like the style, and I just love the complete transformation of the dog. We don't pretend our dog is an angel (she's a big German shepherd). In fact, one of her nicknames is "Devil Dog." Wonderful take on the topic:>

CATRAVEN said...

Really wonderful! What a cute little doggie!
