Boy With Dog

This piece was created as a promotional piece for my rep.

Like I mentioned bellow in the Hermie piece. I do not like using photo textures in my illustrations unless I have too. I only used one on the wood floor in this piece, everything else was created using my custom Photoshop brushes.

This looks great! Reminds me of the dog in Up.
Is that a slight on the poor dogs body odour problem calling him BO-tee hee! :0))

Thanks Claudio & Fhiona for the comments so far.

Fhiona, very funny comment on the dogs name being associated with Body Odor. I never thought of that.

The real reason for his name is, back home, on my Dad and Moms farm, is a dog named BO. He is a German Shepherd mix and my children love him so much that I gave this dog the same name.
The reason for making this dog a Golden Retriever was that it was more suited to be a family dog.
Although, I do like your idea of the play on the name. It does give the dog more character.

Thanks! :)
