I'm so glad you like it!

It's not ever really easy (there is usually cursing involved), but using the tracings of the dogs sure does help with placement and proportion, which can be tough. Plus, it saves on hours of sketching time!

It really is amazing. I just love it so much. I love the flat aqua background, too. Gives it such a whimsical feel and makes the 'multi-dimensional' animals really pop!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Wow. Zers!  What a great likeness!  I have seen this dogs in person and Pete I have seen up close and personal and you really captured them.  Also, very good headware choices.
