;aslkdjfa;ldsfj omg his nickname was Snoopy. That's the cutest thing I've ever heard (and it definitely makes me hear Lucy in my mind, going "he's just a stupid beagle!"). This is a beautiful piece, and a perfect tribute. 3: I'm only sorry for their loss.
Right? I thought the Snoopy nickname for a little beagle was awesome too. I always feel sad when I hear about a pet that's passed away. But it makes me happy to hear the good the memories their human will have about them forever.
I can't get over his eyes ;A; He looks like he was such a loving little fellow, I'm sure his family misses him dearly <3
The way you set up the composition, nose first perspective I guess, reminds me of a collection of photos my dad has- one of each of the dogs he's had over the course of his life. I guess it started when his mom's poodle got nosy around his camera and he ended up with a forced perspective picture of the poodle where his nose took up most of the picture, and there's two eyes behind that and his fluffy ears! Its very cute, and after that my dad thought it was so amusing that he took one like that for the others that he's had through his life.
Thanks! I loved his eyes too the second I saw the reference photo used for this drawing. So soulful and kind.
That's so cool! I like the idea of having a similar portrait of every dog he's had throughout his life. Since most dogs have fairly long snouts, it does create a pretty cool-looking (and often really funny) portrait when they have their nose shoved up in the lens with the rest of their face further back.
You're very welcome! It always captures my heart how expressive animal eyes can be <3
For sure, I always loved the funny story of the first photos conception when dad told it to me as a kid- and I thought I could get away with it too since they did, so I'm sure he spent a buttload of money to get film developed of just my nose pressed up against the lens But they really are great pictures. Each dog looks at the lens differently, I love that. They're all interested or concerned in their own ways.
