Buddy the American Akita by FlannMoriath Buddy the American Akita by FlannMoriath
This is a sketch of a pet portrait of an American Akita named Buddy (who can be seen on ~forsaken-scribble's Flickr account here: [link] and [link] ). This was part of a collaboration I did with ~forsaken-scribble. She colored this sketch, but I probably won't be posting the colored version here.

Commission information: [link]

Critiques warmly welcomed! I'd especially like advice on making dogs look breed-specific (does this dog look like an American Akita?).

Traditionally sketched.
Time spent: Two days.

Art Flann Moriath 2010

Very pretty sketch Flann. I feel that the left ear is a bit too long , I know that there are americaqn akitas with longer or shortes snouts but I feel that yours looks almost wolf like , maybe it should be a little shorter, like here [link] I also feel that the head could be a lil rounder =). Maybe all that fixes up with shading, don't mind me .Great job! =D
