Inspired by a story I read about a homeless man who only had a few dogs as his dearest friends, and unfortunately, one of his dogs died. He was devastated, and his story just impressed me so much, because he would work when he had the opportunity, and spent all his money in taking care of his dogs. He used to smile a lot, even though he faced many hardships everyday, but I think he was truly happier than most of us are. Sorry for the lack of updates guys, I'll try to be more active. PS CS3, about 15-20h of work. Enjoy!

It was so much fun to work on this! Although I also love the genre, only recently have I built up the courage to actually paint in this area and little by little, I feel more comfortable with it. PS CS 3. Enjoy guys!
