German Shepherd Artists?



I haven't picked up the sketchbook for 4 years... I'm not that great but wow, I think I still got it.

Any of you artists have any work of German Shepherds?

Not bad at all!

I used to do traditional art for many years, then switched to digital painting/sketching back in 2007. I took a good year and a half off though. I just got back to it a few days ago when my SO bought me CS5 and gave me a new Wacom Intuos3 tablet (he gets them cheap form work.... he's a lead digital artist for military sim and training).

Anyway... the other night I actually started on a painting of a GSD. Duke is my reference... I figured I would work on some of Duke and Zira to get myself back in the game. Horses and dogs were always my strong point.

I airbrush but currently don't have my equipment set up as some construction is going on in my house. I have done some tshirts of other breeds for people along with other custom projects. Since I got Tazor I cant wait to get him on canvas.

I will post his potrait if this construction ever ends..lol. I never tried canvas but I think the tshirts of pets came out ok ,but I had only been painting for a couple months when I did them.

Love!!! The sketch!

Nice work! My daughter loves to paint and sketch too. She finds lots of websites of other artists that do GSD's and animals in general. I'd post one of her sketches, but she is very concerned about people stealing and using an image of her work. She is not ready to sell anything yet, but working up to it. She's also experimented with colored pencil sketches, and can bring out the red coloring in our black/red shepherd.

I'd definitely love to see some of your work. I'm thinking about getting back into it. Digital Sketching? That sounds hard! Is it pretty precise as hand sketching?

Yes, I'd love to see the portrait. You know, if I gave you a picture of my girl, would you make a T-shirt for me? I'd buy it.

She can even digitally water mark her work. That way no one can steal her work. Please do share.
