week 8 Unrequited puppy love
I always considered myself more of a dog person than a cat person. I actually feel more compassionate to a dog than to human being. I think this is because you can always count on a dog to give you unconditional love. Even if you have a bad day, you can always count on your dog to make you feel like you're worth something. I actually got this idea for a drawing at the dog beach. There I witnessed a man on a his cell phone completely ignoring this adorable puppy at his feet. The small dog looked up at the man towering over it with this happy expression on its face, while the man on the phone seemed too preoccupied to even care about the dog. I found this scene pretty heart breaking and decided to illustrate it. I decided to give my illustration a faux-naive feel to it to give it a feeling of innocence. I also plan on using charcoal and crayon on my final piece.
