Go, dog! by SonPan Go, dog! by SonPan
Here's something to get you in the spirit for Christmas time, and maybe even wish you all wonderful holidays in advance. :)

This was painted for our promo Christmas cards over at Artil Studio - I hope everyone who received one liked his or her postcard!
I went for a children's book style with this one, trying to avoid lines and using a watercolor base with colored pencils for the shading. I had so much fun painting this! The initial sketch was quite a challenge though, and underwent quite a few changes in composition and style until both I and Marc were satisfied with it.
I'd say the result turned out very cute, in the end!

Over at our Facebook page you can see what the final postcards looked like all niecely printed, along with the drawing on the backside.

So anyway, enjoy! ^^

That's just because of the texture the watercolor paper has. :)
