Spirit Run Free by ElysianImagery Spirit Run Free by ElysianImagery
EDIT: got rid of the red as Zombiehun suggested, I like this image a lot better now!

Sometimes there is joy inside for the great life you have that no words can describe, so you let art do it for you <3

I am happy with the way my life has and is going. I hope to continue doing great art and pushing my art further every day. Supporting myself on my art has been a long dream in the making and I look forward to being able to do so better and better with each passing day.

At the same, I'm still hoping to hear back form REI ;)

I very much like this dynamic and colourful canine! :D The character reminds me of a Saluki, even though he got some more muscles!:heart:
Great picture!:la:

Its VERY close to a Saluki :) She's a Russian Wolfhound more commonly known today as a Borzoi. They are a rather hardy wind-hound or sight hound with a thicker coat. They were originally bred to hunt wolves and like the Collie have a slightly hooked tooth to help dig into the fur of its prey. Originally bred in Russia by the Czar and his family the breed was almost lost until they were brought to the america's :)

dude those grassbits came as an after thought when I was looking at the piece and going "you know..... often times the dogs have stuff flying from under their feet when they run...." XD Glad it had the affect I wanted it too!

Critique time!! Beautiful image! But for a cleaner presentation u should cut out that solid border and upload a png of this image so it has more of an impact of your OC running off the mountainside bg :)
