Just Smoking - by DanLuVisiArt Just Smoking - by DanLuVisiArt
So I don't want to be a one trick dog (HAHAHAHA) and only be able to do one type of art (sci fi I guess 2...why dont I just go back and type two types of art? lazy)

So I wanted to do something in the Disney/Pixar/Dreamworks style for the portfolio when I submit to them down the road..something different. So why not draw a dog in a Godfather like setting?

This is also dedicated to a costume designer I worked under on the last FOX film I did..she was very welcoming and gave me a few good speeches on how to approach this this is to you, if you see this. (Don't want to put her name down..since the project I'm working on is yet to be announced)

Hopefully you guys enjoy ;) And crack open a bottle of Emo Cat when you can.

thanks `Rahll and *PearlPhoenix for the help.

""A Bold Bluff" - C.W. Coolidge was used in this.

That dog reminds me of Brian (Family Guy)
Very nice work indeed :)

I love the entire piece [of art], and I am especially fond of the small details in the background (like the brands of the drinks) and I would be insane if I didn't adore the dog!!

Mafioso dogs ftw!
Your work is amazing. If Disney/Pixar/Dreamworks made a Godfather type movie with dogs, I'd go see it. Twice.

Awesome, and full of details. Great done!

I want to take him home and... I don't know, put him in a smoking jacket in a wingback chair in front of a roaring fire.

Actually no, I didn't think of him at all when I saw this. I just wanted to comment because this is soooo different to everything else in your portfolio! No bullets, no explosions, no girls with anatomically challenged nipples ... I'm glad you post your work at this res, it's really fun to look at all the quirky and obsessive compulsive details you put into each painting.

For the record, I never thought 'Brian Griffin' when I saw this, totally different ..

Very nice job!
1TrollSniper1 Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2009   Traditional Artist
Are you serious? This could at leas tbe his causin or something. They look very alike!
Michael137 Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2009  Professional Interface Designer
Well, they're both dogs. But Brian is entirely white. They might be the same breed, but other than that ..
1TrollSniper1 Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2009   Traditional Artist
If it was Brian I'd imagine him in the same pose and place. This classiness suits him
Metroboy Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2009   Writer
That's cool... Reminds me of those pictures they have in bars with dogs playing pool and poker (which I see you've referenced in the corner) :nod:

I'll have a pint of 'Big Dog' beer please :)

Splatterpus Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2008
Oh man, I'm loving this! The warm colours, how solid the figure looks, and the cute little labels on the bottles. An eagerly given fav from me!
DeaconGlassshard Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2008
oh and the attention to detail is amazing
DeaconGlassshard Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2008
absolutely love the lighting, and especially the painting reference in the top right corner. I hope to have a dog like this someday. and it was a groovy break from sci fi, definitely not a mundane chill. you're great cat.

Aw, so cute. ^^
It oddly reminds me of somthing from 101 dalmations actually...
I love his "Can I help you or are you going to leave yet?" look.
pariah87 Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2008
Amazing work. His pose, his outfit, the atmosphere surrounding him (the light and smoke...). Superb and funny :D

Lol nice addition of the painting of dogs playing poker. But perhaps it shoulda been peeeople... because... yeah.

I love all the little details, i think it's just the cutest thing.

Wait a minute.Dog's can't wear shoes! Where do you get dog cufflinks at anyway?!

*head explodes from awesomesness*
BlackLuna Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This dog is funny, cute and sexy so i would say that you did a great job :D
On-A-WHM Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2008

That...that is... amazing!

It DOES look like it could be made by one of those studios. Though more than likely it would be either Pixar or Dreamworks.

The point is, this is awesome!
