Haha I'm glad you liked my dog, that's certainly one of my favourites!
If you're still interested next year, just send me a PM and we'll go from there.
You're much better at pastels than I ever could be (I mainly do pencil or ink...) anyway, I think what is making max look 'off' to you is his ear is offset slightly, and his eyes are unequal by just enough to make a difference. I guess that's why I love working mainly with lead, because you can go back and change things a bit easier, than say, pastel, or ink! Lol!Although with the layering you can do with pastels, can you go back and revamp things? Or is it a once it's done, it's done kind of thing? And I know what you mean by being extremely 'picky'...Lol! I'll toss sketches that other people are like "oh my gosh, that's gorgeous..."
