Bears and Puppies

Did this sketch for a friend last week.
She had requested the inclusion of some bears. I like it,
I think the bears and puppies play well together :)

Rover the Dogmonaut - rendering project

Wanted to do a personal rendering project. Don't get a lot of chance to spend time rendering on image at home so i thought i'd take the opportunity to start on one tonite.
Have completed the intial sketch and started the render. Here's the progress so far.

Quick scribble

Wanted to draw something but didn't know what so i sorta made this up as i go. I find it kind of liberating to work in this sort of quick loose style.
Have included a few of the stages.

Just went and saw Pixar's UP

I just went and saw Pixar's UP, and wow!
I thought after Wall-E it would be a hard follow up so i went in prepped for disappointment.
How i could have ever doubted the brilliance of Pixar is beyond me. I'm hesitant to make comparison's to Wall-E as i am still riding on the euphoria of UP, but i must say - WOW!
Pixar have shown yet again that they are truly in a league of their own when it comes to character and storytelling.
And as a dog fan I was in heaven. I think Dug may be the cutest animated dog character i have ever seen on film. Simply brilliant and utterly hilarious.
If you get the chance go and see this film immediately. I saw it in 3d which was fantastic but i'd have to say the story and characters are that good that without the 3d this is simply brilliant.
Needless to say i came home inspired and scribbled up this Dug-inspired sketch. I did mine a little younger and thinner than the movie character.
Coloring a little darker too.
