Bulldog by DavidRapozaArt Bulldog by DavidRapozaArt

Daily Deviation

Given 2015-01-06
Bulldog by DavidRapozaArt is an inspiring piece in of itself. The battles we face in life can leave us very well beaten and broken, but the courage and strength to rise again is well evident in this character's attitude. This truly brings to life the spectacular emotion of "keep on going". ( Suggested by lovelessdevotions and Featured by KovoWolf )

This character is so bad-ass. I really wish at some point, that I could have made something like this. I'm also really jealous because even if I had thought of this, it wouldn't look anywhere near this intense or dramatic. I tip my hat to you, good sir. Keep up the amazing work.

Very cool.

I don't know about that DD description. I don't know who writes those but it seems to me that this doesn't need all that deeper meaning. Surely it's enough just to be a brutal old warrior dog.

I will say this though - you can tell that he serves his cause in battle with his life, but his face betrays the fact that he would be happier in a nice big soft armchair smoking a pipe with his slippers on.

Did you follow the process from your tutorial (painting a B/W image) for this one, or did you start with color?

Yea, I am planning on making a tutorial about actually improving your work as opposed to following my steps. Following steps in a tutorial is no substitute for years and years of studying and understanding light and form. Hopefully I can start on that soon :)!

That's some impressive lighting on the Bulldog and the engravings on their armor! I really like those little bright dots that imply tears and blood running down their face, which helps strengthen the pained expression you painted on them. 

Excellent work!
