-painted portrait of Marcie- by oomizuao -painted portrait of Marcie- by oomizuao
I started on this yesterday at midnight, painted until about 03:30 AM, slept a few hours, finished it just a few minutes ago ;)

This was painted on a flat canvas (without a frame) and is approximately A3 sized. I used acrylic paint.
I haven't painted realism in... well... I can't remember last time I tried painting realism.... So I hope this looks ok :) I'm actually rather pleased with it.. I mean, there are things I could have done to make it look better, but I'm afraid I'll ruin it because I'm not that good with paint.. :B I'm practicing to get better though :)

But yeah, what do you guys think? ^^;

This is awesome :3 the face especially holds a lot of expression and detail. the one thing that i find a little off is the paws. But its still an amazing painting and you have every reason to be proud of this.

practive as u very well know is the best way to get better
I cant paint at all so I envy your awsome skills 
the only suggestion I make is make the background look like it goes behind the dog more
but i totally understand about not wanting to ruin it

Well crap I thought it was a photo at first! The only reason I know it isn't a photo with effect applied is because you say it isn't. xD It's really good! ^^

The first time I looked I thought it was a photo... Then I read the title and had to do a double take, quite a few times.
It looks beautiful!
