Here are some of my drawings of various animals including a lion, a tiger and a dog. The dog was my beloved friend who passed away years ago. His name was Ficko.
I used Derwent drawing pencils on 9×12″ toned paper.
Any comments or critiques are welcome.
“Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe. We are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made. ”
ROGER ANDREW CARAS (American wildlife photographer)
“Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.”
“We long for an affection altogether ignorant of our faults. Heaven has accorded this to us in the uncritical canine attachment.”
“The more I see of man, the more I like of dogs.”
Mme. DE STAEL
“If you pick a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man.”
This is a portrait of my beloved dog, named Ficko. He is the best dog on Earth. Period.
“The more I see of some people the better I like my dog.”
Hmm, whoever said so on occasion I must agree with. Our dog is our best friend as per the age-old adage. Dou you have a dog? Why don’t you share with me your memorable dog story?
Why do our fellow citizens betray us so frequently? Why do we have so few faithful friends? Why do we read about so much human betrayal while turning the pages of our history? I think we can learn a lot from our dogs.
This is my dog, Ficko. Whenever I come home after a hectic, busy day, he greets me and is ready for a nice, relaxing walk.
