Dogged Pursuit by KatieHofgard Dogged Pursuit by KatieHofgard
A piece for Delta 141 of his character John Ryder!  Firearms are an artistic weakness of mine, especially if anyone wants it to look exactly like a certain model of a real weapon.  Thankfully with good visual references, I can usually do an ok job painting them.  So everyone, enjoy this exceedingly bad-ass looking German Shepherd!

Work in progress shots can be found in my tumblr - eskiworks.tumblr.com/post/8967…
9 hours in Photoshop CS6 with an Intuos 3 tablet

WOW!Reminds me of Dog the bounty hunter. I watched that show all the time and German Shepherds are my #1 favorite dog breed. I grew up around them.

He's even holding his weapon correctly. Huge points for that!

The character is past 30, but I guess it might be Shadow-Wolf's style that made him look young. :L

Yes! I love seeing other artists I watch do art of characters that I know. It's always a sweet surprise. Fantastic job! I think you render firearms just fine.

Such a badass character and you potrayed him amazingly! Loving those boots and the details on clothing, the colors really pop out even if the character wears mainly black. Wonderful job! :heart:
