Dancing fuu by Girasols-reflection Dancing fuu by Girasols-reflection
Aww, look, I did something this summer!

No, really. I've been quite busy with so many problems, vacations, and whatnot. Just complete flip flop events.

Anyways, this Fuu pup was inspired by looking at :iconmissmonster:'s awesome gallery. I absolutely love the hounds, and thought "hey, I should draw one for fun"

The sketch turned into an inking project at night on my Hawaii trip, and I decided to brave the colored pencils yesterday.

So a very slow piece of work, dunno exactly how long it took. I'm content with how he came out, despite my huge weakness for colored pencils and the lack of drastic shades and highlights.

But then again, I kind of like all the obnoxious colors. Makes him look goofy.

So I'm content and may keep this design for fuu pups in the future. Huzzah!

I really like the flow you have with your colors. The yellows and blues/purples go well with all the red on your "fuu dog." The space on the paper was used nicely. It's an animated pose. I really like the concept behind the creature and will go look at *missmonster's gallery as well.

Great job with the colored pencils. There is a product that smooths and blends colored pencils well it would get rid of those white speckles.

Thanks, I really appreciate the comment. She is a great artist, so I also thank you for looking at her stuff as well.

Know what any of that is called? I'll try using a smudge tool but I believe part of the problem is the tooth of the page. Thanks for the tip.

I was referring to something traditional not digital in nature. It's some what like this [link] or there's a liquid marker variety as well.

Aye, thank you. I'll get my hands on one of those next time I go to a store =)
