Shih Tzu Sketch by greeniebone Shih Tzu Sketch by greeniebone
Feeling inspired by some awesome doggie & anime artwork I saw today by hallucinojen, I decided to do some animation-style doggie designs of my own. I have always been annoyed how you rarely see small dog drawings. Why people focus so much on big dogs is beyond me, as my two small dogs, Mac the Maltese and Mei the Shih Tzu, have given me just as much love as any big dog. (No offense to big dog owners; I love ALL dogs, regardless of size!)

Well anyway, here are some quick drawings I did of a random Shih Tzu dog. I tried to make the eyes slightly slanted, since Shih Tzus are Chinese dogs, after all. ^_^ These are just really rough sketchy pictures, an attempt to get a feel on capturing that Shih Tzu look in an animation style....this one looks a lot like my Mei, of course, although her hair is a bit shorter right now.

This is great! Looks like my Maltese Shih Tzu <3 - we've never cut her hair, let it grow out into this beautiful shape - lots of brushing but she is gorgeous! <3 They look like a cloud, floating as the run around on the ground :aww:

That is so so SO cute! I especially love her facial expression and eyes, they're really expressive. And you're right, the toy breeds get no love.

Oh, it's so pretty, Greenie!! I love all your sketches.. Especially this one, considering my Shih Tzu. ^_^ The eyes are just so big and full, I love them! But the feet have to be the best part of the picture.. 0_0 They're so awesome.

o_o Really, the feet? And wow, you have a Shih Tzu too?!? Me, you & Majenta....who else?? ^_^ Now you must send me a picture of your furbaby......
hallucinojen Featured By Owner May 23, 2004
Oh this is DARLING! I think that a rough, sketchy style is actually very fitting for Shih Tzu drawings - gotta capture all that fur somehow ;) I love the full-body drawing especially; it looks like it could just come to life ^_^
