It could be the best deviation I've ever seen or one of them!!! Your tecnique is really incredible!! It took me seconds to asume if it was real or not. It owes more than a fave and a watch, but I guess it the less thing I could do!!
*flings pencils out the window* It's official. I give up.
Ignoring the slight depression brought on by the sudden rush of envy... This is an amazing picture, and you've outdone yourself. I have a few dogs of my own, and this looks highly accurate in both physiology and personality shown with the dog. He or she is so happy. The water is also handled nicely. It seems a bit more stylized than the dog, but doesn't detract from the picture. I love how you can see that it is distorting the dog parts below the surface, but not to the point where you can't guess the position of the limbs.
