Rhodesian Ridgeback by Golphee Rhodesian Ridgeback by Golphee
Started out as a photorealism practice, but then I got carried away and it just turned into fuzzy coloury madness :la: You can totally see where I got bored after doing the face and just roughed it everywhere else

I love ridgies though - if I didn't have a lurcher pup to worry about, I'd certainly get one.

Might add this to the Alphabet Breeds folder . . . it's not in order but I havent updated that thing in ages.

This is beautiful! I like how detailed this is, and how you made the fur shine and the indication of ribs!

I would also like to have a Ridgeback some time, but my boyfriend thinks they are way to big! I will change his mind though ;)

Can I be you're student? I'll even call you master if you teach me how to draw like this.
I do not lie, I am telling the truth...

Lol unfortunately drawing isnt something I can teach you as well as you can teach yourself. The best thing to do is tons and tons of practice - make sure you're enjoying what you're drawing, and do it as much as possible :)

Wow... that is just... amazing. It's so detailed, as if you took a photograph. Sort of looks like my puppy when she was younger except she's a Black Labrador Retriever <3. I love the position you put her/him in too :D.
