Not just for Christmas ... by pbird12 Not just for Christmas ... by pbird12
... My important message for 2012 :nod: :tears:

This wee guy is my contribution to Simone's :icondreamarian: brilliant idea for a collab. I made her drawing a friend :D I'm going to send this little fella to her to finish off any way she chooses. She is sending me this beeyootiful kitty to finish off (which I am terrified of messing up) -

Materials:
A4 mellotex
Graphite 3H-6B
FC Polychromos
Erasers
Time: About 5-6 Hours
Ref: Christmas Puppy Wallpaper

Thank you for having a look and Happy Holidays when they arrive! :iconreindeerplz:
Paula :heart:

The puppy is adorable with its little red nose. Your title works perfectly to make the viewer take a closer look at the drawing. Initially I had the awww cute puppy reaction, but on closer inspection you can really see a sadness behind its eyes. I also think you picked a fantastic composition that fits with the message. The puppy is down in the bottom corner almost like it will soon be forced out of the picture. I really don't understand how anybody can not love animals. How can anybody be heartless enough to just give them away because they don't want to deal with them anymore? This completly baffles me and is the main reason shelters are so overrun.

I thought it would be a good little reminder, it breaks my heart to see all the tiny animals abandoned when people realise how much work they are :( They need to do their homework and very carefully consider before committing! I know because our new family member came to live with us just yesterday :happybounce: His name is Patch :)

Thank you for being so lovely :tighthug:

Hope Patch is fitting in well:D My boyfriend had a kitten for a little while we got pretty attached to, but his student housing doesn't allow pets so sadly she had to go or he would be evicted. We still very much miss her, but were able to find her a very loving home with one of his friends on the plus side. Featured here [link] :heart:
