The Protector by CanisAlbus The Protector by CanisAlbus
Deutscher Schäferhund.

There wasn't a single proper piece featuring a German Shepherd in my gallery. I also have tried to design a GSD character for myself (since I've never had one) but somehow none of them turns out nicely. On the other hand I already have too many characters ahahaa so nevermind.
I still can't do lineless/realistic stuff, let's say this is close enough.

Faber-Castell colored pencils, Staedtler pigment liner, watercolors, Promarkers,

Tämä on kyllä todella upea, jotenkin tuollainen "voimakas" tunnelma tässä, kuvakulmakin on todella upea! Hienoa työtä! c:

Tämä tosiaan poikkeaa muista työstä lähikuvallaan ja että et ole
tehnyt samankaltaisia ennen. Ymmärrän että on varmasti hankala
saada aidon näköistä arttia ja kyllä tätä voisi siksi sanoakin, vaikka
hieman tyylitellympi versio siitä on. Tykkään joka osasta tästä ja
muustakin artistasi, tosi monipuolinen tyylivarasto ja näitä tunne
värikuvia on aina ilo katsella! ^^

It may not be hyper-realistic or anything like that, but I really do think you did a great job with this.  It's kind of semi-realistic, semi-stylized.. a combination of your style and semi-realism that really works nicely together.  I like the loose fur texture and the intense contrasts and eyes.  Really sweet composition, too.  Brilliant~

The nose is what caught my attention this time, and those whiskers. It looks fantastic, I really enjoy how the fur sort of fades out toward the bottom, as well.

Pshhh screw the absence of lines! The way you do your lines adds to your pieces, they aren't just lines.
