    I like it too. The only thing that slightly bothers me is the lower jaw. Wouldn't the jowl partially cover it. I take it it's a bull mastiff?


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    I think it needs more shadow as it does stand out a fair bit. It's nowhere near as bright in your ref even allowing for the cast shadow removed.

    i like the rim lighting in the photo. maybe darken the dog and punch up a rim light. might add more interest. also the collar looks awkward in the painting. it would also look better if it followed the contour like in the photo.
