Chase Your Dreams by CanisAlbus Chase Your Dreams by CanisAlbus
My half of an art trade with the awesome ~faithandfreedom. Her characters Faith (border collie) and Freedom (doberman). They're a cute couple indeed c:

This one was very relaxing to make. I've never been too great at drawing clouds and grass, but I think this turned out pretty well. Better than I first expected, at least. I always love strong perspectives and sense of motion on art, so I played with those when sketched this~

I'm aware that the grassy field background is a bit similar as in her trade part for me. You see, I had this very idea in the moment I asked to draw these two characters together. When she uploaded her part I was surprised that she had the same idea too :'3 I tried to change it to something else but this one was already stuck in my brain and this is the result. I hope you don't mind~

Thanks again for trading with me! I hope you like it :3

Black Staedtler pigment liner, Faber-Castell colored pencils, watercolours, gouaches.

The sky is painted with gouache, it's really easy to get neat and smooth colors and gradients using them.

OMG the awesomeness!:faint:
I really dig the perspective you used here!And the colours<3
The poses and the expressions are gorgeous too!
I love Faith so much! She looks great in your style!
You should draw Border Collies more often =P
Eheh I didn't mention Freedom because I already knew you were that great with dobes!
Ahah don't worry for the bg<3 it's so pretty!!

And the title! It's perfect ;A;
I'm so glad you enjoyed drawing them! Thank you so much for trading with me!!

Haha, so glad to hear it looks good to you :D
Border collies, yes... in fact, Faith was the first Border collie I've ever drawn OwO
I had to browse trough a dozen dog books to get her appearance look right :'D They're absolutely wonderful dogs, wonder why I didn't get around to portray any of them any sooner.
And Freedom was just as great as always, though now that I looked at his reference once more, I noticed that those tan markings could have been a bit brighter ^^;

My pleasure ^^

This tittle made be remember one pretty good series, which have theme with this kind lyrics..

***

People say it’s quite a way to heaven
Many miles beyond a distant star
Now I know that all dogs go to heaven
But until we chase our dreams that far

We will find a little heaven
Everywhere around us
Find a little heaven
Everywhere we are
This might not be paradise
But boy it sure is fun
And we’re not perfect angels, why pretend
Through funny times and sad ones
Lucky breaks and bad ones
We always come out smiling in the end

We find a little heaven
Everywhere around us
Find a little heaven
You and I, my friend

Ah, arvelinkin vähän että kyseisestä sarjasta (tai elokuvasta) tuo voisi hyvinkin olla peräisin :'D Mutta kuten jo sanoin, ainakin lyriikoiltaan sopii tähän erinomaisesti~
