Love Me The Most by Heatherzart Love Me The Most by Heatherzart
Scratchboard and Ink
16" x 20"

Here is the colored version of . His name is Jack and he's a Basset Hound. After I started drawing him I thought of this line from a Wally Lamb book where the dog woke up his owner every morning with the same look - as if to say "wake up, feed me, love me the most". I think anyone who's had a dog can't help but smile at that sentiment.

This is the new professional file I had done of him. The detail is better and color much truer.
