So I had this great idea in my head to make a painting of my beagle on canvas...

Here is my Mad!dox:

And here is my original:

I'm totally not thrilled with the results... I'm really bummed acutally. : (

This is my first time paininting something and so anyway if someone could tell me how to fix this or some comments on how to do it better next time maybe? So, cool.. thanks! Cheesy

i think he looks great! i think the only thing that would improve him at all is a thin black line to show the shape of his mouth, and maybe use white paint to put the highlight in on his eye again...
maybe there is too much blue showing above his nose, so it looks a bit distorted, but again fixable with white paint! Cheesy
other than that its very good! Cheesy

That's way better than I could do! I love that blue color, it looks really pretty with the white/black.

Totally bummed? WHY? it's very charming and doggy. Do you think you could do the same for a pug?
