R.I.P. Zak

R.I.P. Zak! A photoshop digital painting of my grandfathers old Alsation Zak. He was a guard dog, yet his bark was much worse than his bite, he was such a big softy.

    Aww he's so cute! Doesn't look like he would actually bite somebody.Smile You must love animals very much if you can show so much emotion in his eyes. I don't think I'd be able to do that quite as good. Wonderful job.Favorite

      lol i doubt he would've... his teeth were really worn down from him chewing on stones to keep him amuzed lol. yeah, ive been around animals all my life and i hate seeing one injured or with some sort of problem...

        Poor thing.Sad He sounds alot like my art teacher's dog.*grins* She loves eating stuff I'm afraid. Luckily doesn't grind stones but alot of paper, rubber, wook bark and generally ruining other people's stuff.Laughing I loved playing with her alot.Smile Unfortunately I don't have any animals, if I could have one though, I think I'd like to have a german shepherd like her.Yes I'm so wih you, I hate seeing animals hurt, especially being abused.><

    I've noticed that you're very good at drawing animals. Smile That's nifty. I really love the emotion in this pic, too. I'm a sucker for animals. R.I.P, Zak!

        You're welcome. Big Smile And if you can draw animals this well, then I'm sure you'll have no problem in improving on people. I'm with ya! *hands you a cookie* and so are sugary baked products! xD
