Decopaw art pic of the week

I love this project. This is a 12-year old guy named Houndog. He has spent his entire life with his mom, after she rescued him from a bunch of crazy drunken gun-toting rednecks in Oregon as a puppy. Houndog’s mom and dad had a great video of him running on the beach that they were hoping I could use to create art from. They sent me the following still image from the video that they really loved and felt really expressed Houndog’s happy nature.







I took a look at it and played around with the resolution and determined that sadly it wouldn’t work for the art. It was such a cute shot of him however that I was determined to give them what they were looking for. I suggested a decopaw sitting at Gasworks so I could snap some running shots of Houndog. I was thrilled when I saw the images of him running with his ears flying, and felt that I could give them something very close to their original vision.

The result is the ‘simple’ design proof that you see below- “Houndog Running Smoke Blue”. I love the dynamic of the shadow and his ‘vertical’ ear.












The last photo is the image that I captured at Gasworks that I designed the art from. Yay Houndog! How cute is he? 🙂












It looks like Houndog’s parents are going with the above proof, in a slightly lighter color. I’m psyched because this is my favorite one too!
