Summer Days by Lhuin Summer Days by Lhuin
Something I just started on a whim hahah, been wanting to draw a border collie ♥ (if I got a dog would love to get one of them), dark fur and flowers! Surprisingly happy with the result, tried to imitate a camera focus too which I've been wanting to try on a painting as well.
Did it on one sitting, took me around 3.5-4 hours.

Also tried a completely new fur techinque (faster to do too), and grass was nice to draw too! Pretty much the same way anyways XD

anyway hope you like, thanks for looking! :aww: Gonna go to bed now haha getting late.

Drawn in photoshop
