Fun With Pooch


I'm working on a bunch of freelance projects at the moment but I can't show any of them to you :(



So you get a cat with a red cape riding Pooch. Pooch is my dog. I go hiking with Pooch almost everyday...and snap action shots just for fun.



And I've played with a few of them in Photoshop. I know - it's weird - but I'm weird - so....


I don't know why I like to draw other animals riding on my dog's back...I think it's ok as long as she doesn't find out.

  8. Ok-Ok. Your art is amazing. We all know that (isn't it why we are here?) BUT, I have to ask: How did you get the shot of Pooch where she looks like she is going to run us down? I'd like to see the after shot of you taking a pic of her! :)

    1. Good question Elizabeth! So - she loves to chase balls...snowballs are no different - so I got her hooked on snowballs years ago. When she's up the road 50 yards or so all I have to do is get my camera phone ready and then reach down like I'm picking up snow - then I call her and she comes in at 90 MPH (or there abouts)...the trick is knowing when to snap the picture before she blows the phone out of my hand. I have to take about 20 pictures to get a keeper - the delay on the camera will cause me to take it too early or late most of the time. :)

    2. That sounds like so much fun. The 20 pics for a keeper sounds eeirly familiar to me....

    1. Apparently not, well here it is again:
      I just wanted to thank you so much for making the video tutorials, i bought painting in photoshop a few days ago and i must say the first part about not giving up etc. really moved me. It was exactly what i needed to hear, i was about to give up my dream because i thought i wasn't good enough. Your course has given me the strength to try harder and not give up!

      I also like how you explain and talk about alot of things while you paint, that was things don't ever get boring.

      That said, I have shared your site with my art friends and I will surely buy more tutorials from you! Thank you!

    2. Thank you so much Lina! I really appreciate the note! When I looked into making tutorials I noticed that most artists become all business in front of the camera and I thought - "this doesn't let me get to know their personality". I'm not a mysterious kind of guy so I didn't want to tighten up on my videos. I just pretend that I'm at school with my students or that I have someone in my studio that I'm trying to explain my message to. I'm glad you liked it!
