Hachiko Movie Soundtrack
"The Meaning of Life"--- This song got me to be inspired to draw the Bubble around Hachiko...which then turned into a kind
"Coming Home"--- Found this song towards the end of my drawing...I found it intriguing that in Reuben Halsey music video, there was also a movie clip of a bubble floating
My Thoughts on this:
Proportions: Yes the head/forehead is way too big for the body, I used several google references, and I believe the one i used of a shiba inu looked even more disproportionate than what you see here. Overall, I'm disappointed with how Hachiko turned out. Proportions are a major weakness here. I thought about fixing it, but decided to leave it as it is to show how much I struggle with art sometimes.
Fur: I got real lazy towards the end of this drawing with the fur, I'm sure I could of spent another 10 hours on it to make it look soft, but I spent way too much time on this as it was, sorry folks...
World/Bubble: probably the best part of this drawing. I am thrilled to have it even come out the way it did thanks to Photoshop Sharpening effect. Hachiko was drawn in Paint Tool Sai. The World/bubble was pretty much done in photoshop
