Homage to the dog who shares my life. A beautiful ball of fur, both tender and wild, who spends his days playing.
My partner’s shiba inu is the star of our house. The dog’s pretty face, fire-colored coat reminiscent of a fox’s, and donkey-like side made me want to draw his portrait. I wanted to highlight what characterizes him the most: his curious and wild side. So I opted for a dark color background to bring out the details and colors. The result is the combination of a rather realistic base and a cartoony expression that perfectly conveys his mischievous gaze.
Small and a hunter at heart, the shiba inu likes to hide in tall grass.
The color of his coat just melts into this vegetation, giving a glimpse of his pretty face. This is his way of looking at the world.
