This pictures was living in hiding for a while. *g* It was a commission for Exalted, who asked me to portray his two Australian Shepherds as a surprise for his wife's birthday (which was yesterday).
If he hadn't told me that Broom (black) and Cloony (Silver Merle) were brothers, I wouldn't have guessed so. Not only do they look so different, their behaviour is also arranged at opposite ends.
I enjoyed this kind of pet portrait a lot.
There is yet another finished piece I am still holding back, as it's meant to be a surprise, too, so you see, I have been quite active after all. XD
