Alphabet Dogs by Wolfdog Alphabet Dogs by Wolfdog
This is the finished product of all those polls I got you to vote on back in February, hurrah!
I know it isn't perfect, but I can't change it any further as it is set in paint. The Lhasa Apso keeps annoying me. Should be further up!
Ok, and I know this isn't all in strict alphabetical order. I had to tweak it around to make the composition better. Please don’t tell me that a certain dog has the wrong colours or is the wrong size. These are all real colours, and there are certain size variations within breeds. I was going on a more comparative aspect. Look at the Yorkie versus the Wolfhound!
There are no cropped ears or docked tails either. Oh yes, Rotties do have tails, and Great Dane's ears really are floppy! So no bitchin’ about that >: (
And yes, not all of the portrait dogs are brown. It’s one of those old monochrome photo effects.
Also by happy coincidence, my 3 dogs have ended up next to each other. Ok, so I have a brindled lurcher not a Hungarian greyhound, but it still looks good. The others are a scottie and a westie (now deceased)
I used photo refs, from breed books and the net. How could I not? O_o
The size of this is 50cmx25cm. The Yorkie is 1.5cm tall!

Anyway, I shut up now! Enjoy!
