Magic Dog

I got a new scanner, for £50. Less than half price. Wonderful. Not knowing how to use watercolour pencils however, is not.

I got a new scanner today, and it's not set up yet. Oh my!

Featured Breed: Chow Chow

The Chow

These dogs have a really funny face in sticking out slightly from a big old ball of fluff. I notice in the URL of that picture that they are apparently a nonsporting dog breed, which is a shame. I don't see why they can't play nice.
The Chow is thought to be one of the oldest recognizable dog breeds, which is funny, because I'd never heard of them. Ancient Chinese sculptures of Lions were based on them, since at the time in ancient China they had only ever heard descriptions of Lions. This is their main claim to fame apparently, and even that sounds made up.
I've not much to say here, so I resorted to asking other people.

You know anything about Chow Chow dogs?

Featured Breed: Pomeranian

The Pom

Pomeranians are small furry dogs, assumedly named for their resemblance to a pom pom. In fact, they are also known by that name, or just 'Pom' for short. Come to think of it, which came first? Maybe pom poms got their name from the dog. This is something I'm sure I could find out, but I shalln't bother.
According to Wikipedia Pomeranians are "typically very friendly, playful and active." Which I am going to take as meaning they are mental, and jump around a lot. Just looking at them makes me think "that is gonna be one hyperactive dog."
On a side note, I love how non-encylopedic the sections of Wikipedia concerning dog behaviour are. Apparently Pomeranians are "very protective of their owners and love to be around them." Wikipedia is known for being made by a team of beurocratic OCD sufferers who insist that everything is verified, sourced, and non-biased (supposedly) but they're happy to attribute human emotions and behaviours to dogs. (Another example would be the statement that Poodles are "creative about finding mischief.")
I can't really think of much else to say about them other than they are fun to draw.
Oh! Ai Kago, J-Pop singer and Guinness Book of World Records breaking hula hoop player, owns a Pomeranian. This is one of the many interesting and useful facts you learn from my blog, yo.

Super Rushed Dog

I was working on a Cubist Dog, and then I look at the clock and FUCK it's 11:50! So this is the result. If you have any suggestions or requests, shoot the comment box with some words, yo.

Unsensible Dog

I don't think "unsensible" is a word.

Bit rushed this one. But I like it none the less.

Cheesey Old Anime Dog

This might be the character for my next finished piece.
This is my attempt to draw the same character in the style of my friend Brittney, but it just looks like I drew normally and shat on it.

Obama's Puppy

I'm not feeling completely hunky-dorey today, so I might have another pop at this tomorrow, yo.

Featured Breed: Poodle

A friend of the family has a Poodle. It's mental. It jumps like three times it's height whenever someone comes in to the house and it barks at anything and is vicious. It has some scary teeth on it. It's a little black bastard, and you just see a black blur hopping around with gnashing teeth. It once went to attack a horse, and as it got closer it realised how big the horse was, and stopped. It rolled under it's hoofs and almost got trampled. It's really mental.
I am convinced that all poodles are like this. Although I'm told they're really smart, but I don't believe it.
The picture I drew for this is titled "King of the Jungle" which is a really clever joke, and the idea of colouring it pink is really original too.

Rocket Pooing Dog

I am sorry, I drew this at like 1am as a doodle and liked it so I saved it. I meant to draw a better one to post, but I didn't expect to be busy today. It turns out I am. Sorry. Merry April Fools!

Blog Over

I'm sorry to inform you that Every Day I Draw a Dog is over. I didn't draw one today, it's getting late today, as it often does when the thought "I need to draw a dog" creeps in to my mind, and it occurred to me that I don't. That is to say, I don't actually need to draw a dog.
Truth be told, I don't like dogs. They're nice to play with for five or ten minutes, but they're not for life really are they? I never understood why people like to keep dogs. They're always chasing them away from bins, rolling in shit, or having to yank them away from skateboarders, cyclists, other dogs, or whatever else takes their interest.
I honestly don't know why I started this project, but it's over now. I didn't like dogs before hand, but having to draw one every day has just got on my tits, and though I didn't think it possible but I like them even less now.
So so long you horrible, moulting, loud, dirty, smelly animals. So long stupid articles where I strain to find something nice to say about these foul creatures. Most fondly I'll be waving a good bye to all the time I spend trying to sift a small nugget of humour from these thoroughly unlikeable monsters.
Not today, not tomorrow, will I ever draw another dog. Especially not like this.
