I like the atmosphere of the piece. I'm rather envious of you, I could never use watercolour sensibly. Or, for that matter, any kind of paint. You handled the background well, the small details are amazing. I only have one little thing I dislike in this, and that should be the pug's hand holding the cigar. For me, it seems a bit too feminine. For a male pug, I'd have imagined something more sturdy.
Either way, I admire the picture. You can almost feel the laziness of a warm afternoon while looking at it.
Try it, I think that you could like it a lot. It's a famous french comic and a big inspiration for many artist, with very political and touching storys and great characters. I have to admit that I absolutely love it!! ^_^
Hello, I love all of your work, but the Anthro are my favorites. Mr.McHaggis, Colonial Pug and of course the drunken Geese always make me smile. Keep them coming. I check your page every other day looking for something new and revisit my favorites for inspiration.
Oh, too funny! Love the cut glass decanter, the old style ink blotter, the elephant figurine and the fly whisk. The details totally make this piece! Lovely ink line and deft handling of the watercolor. Kudos on a wonderful piece!
