Owner of this wonderful dog commissioned his portrait from overseas. Wave, or “Tuffy” is a NCSU’s Live Mascot! He does his job great!  It was a great joy to paint him, as I am my self a big fan of tamaskan dogs. This wolf-like breed sure has something special in it! Tuffys owner sent me a very nice reference photo done by a professional photographer and though it was shot in the sun and his color a bit off, I was a pleasure to draw him! I used his other pictures and owners help to get the colours straight.

Do you see a little scar on his thounge? It’s his own mark and I had to draw it right! Hopefully, after some mistakes, I did it right!
