Bella Capone by fantasio Bella Capone by fantasio
a different dog portrait, i know the idea is not new, but its my take on a more realistic approach to this themed fantasy -animal portraitures
This special one was done for my Brother and his Pug Lady Heidi - (therefore Bella;-) )

Daily Deviation

Given 2006-07-28
I just can't take my eyes off of Bella Capone by ~fantasio! It looks so realistic with the great blend, and classic pose! You have to check this one out. ( Suggested by ssecret and Featured by MidnightExigent )

Where to start? This is BEAUTIFUL. The muted, warm colors, the texturing on the fur, the expression on the dog's face, the few (yet perfectly placed and chosen) props all come together WONDERFULLY in this painting. It's a perfect portrait, the simple background allowing the subject to stand out as it should. The choice of the hat, the cigarello (?), the card, the martini, the tie, this is so well planned out, it's hard to believe. I can literally think of NOTHING that this painting needs. This should be hanging on a wall somewhere. The flow you've created, following the line of smoke down, through the tie, to the cards and the drink, it's all marvelous! This is a truly amazing piece!
What do you think?

This is very interesting and captures my attention and holds it. The cigar and the smoke though are my favorite passage. Well done :-)

Nicely done, though I think he could use a chair to sit on. Just a suggestion of something back there, so he doesn't appear to be floating.

Like a lot of people, I thought this was a photo manipulation at first. The dog is painted beautifully! The details in the fur are very well done especially.

this is cute, but i can deff. see the perspective issues the person below me mintioned. Still, the dog is rendered beautifully. Wonderful work. At first glance i thought it was a photo manip.

thanks, the reference used for this piece was a photo from my brother´s pug and he even had this position on our table, the only thing which makes the perspective thing a bit "stand out" is the martini-drink, which is intended to fall a bit off...

It's a cute idea, and beautiful textures and color, but the perspectives on the table, the dog's paws, and the martini glass don't match up, and I know it's a dog's mouth and that it doesn't equate to a human's, but it still doesn't look like the cigar is really in its mouth and that he could be using it. I didn't even realize this was a daily deviation after noticing all those things until I scrolled down. I saw this in someone's faves and wanted to take a closer look, but all those errors just came glaring out at me. It's not that you don't deserve a daily deviation for your work, because the dog is rendered beautifully, it's just that this piece would be so much better, and would be 'fixed', if you noted those few details when finishing it up.

thanks for the critique!
maybe you are right with some points here, but for someone who actually not paint dogs that much(like me)
its ok, i call it caricature, you´re right on the perspective thing, but my focus lies on the composition - thats how i compensate errors:P
