Thanks for your kind words everyone, I did him a while ago but was stuck on a background until I brought it out again and had another play.
I know non conventional, I always do the background last, I guess it comes from all the years of photo retouching.

Thanks, the change in pigment occurs during the winter months and is known as a snow nose, tends to go away during the summer months.
It is not unique to Siberian Huskies as there are other breeds that it occurs in as well.

Sorry, I thought is a wolf. Is that husky? Their ancestor are almost the same, I think. Not so sure. I should check it out again. I used to have a big Rough Collie. I love husky and german shepard too but I can't have any now. Beautiful Hunter he is :)

Yes lots of stories, dogs have been very much part of our lives for a long time, prior to Sibes we raised Shetland sheepdogs.

Very nice painting (and I like the photo too)! The fur looks so real I want to touch it! You need to have a lot of patience doing this! Or is there a special tool which can help? (I am not patient enough for the time beeing to try to paint animals I'm afraid...) :o

Thanks folks glad you like him actually I use a sticker brush for some of the hair initially and then on other layers I go to the pen tool on layers with different blend modes to complete it.
