On the Spring Festival, I was kind of a get-up-late person. So every morning, my dog was always waiting at my bed, laying his head on the bedside, eying on me for hours. Man, at that moment, how come you could still fall into sleep again. That’s how I took this photo.
Then an idea came to me before I knew it. I started gathering inspirations and materials to brew my painting for more than a month. I finally began to create this artwork several weeks ago. During my leisure time as I off-duty and weekends, the road to completion took lots of hours and hours. And now, here are some of my painting procedures for art lovers as a learning reference.
For some people, they might consider painting as copying, or cloning, which’s not. In my opinion, Arts is more likely to show your own feelings. Take poetry and song. Artists put their thoughts on the paper to boost public feelings via their experiences of life. Arts has its own personality, so strong that no one could ask an artist to paint what they like. The painting style or themes will not be changed by surroundings or other reasons. When an artist finishes his artwork, it more tends to be an astonished masterpiece that enjoys great popularity and his style may go virus that is followed by people from all over the world.
The snapshot for reference is pretty low resolution. In order to understand his whole body and the direction of the fur growth, I took almost 20 pics of his profile to grasp them. I drew each fur one by one. His cheek, for example, was painted for hours for such a small part while I outlined and retouched it.
This artwork is still in 4K, the same as the one I painted last year (See ‘The Best Selfie Ever’), and even better. You can crop one of these close-up to be wallpaper. Take the two screenshots below. The artwork I’ve finished fit perfectly well on both mobile and pc as a wallpaper. Pretty cool ah 😀
And now, let’s enjoy my painting with this song. The song is a BGM from the award-winning game “Life is Strange”. I also translate the lyrics to fit my artwork well. And thx for your weeks of waiting and consistently supports.

歌词 | Lyrics:
翻译：BubbleSwan | Translated by BubbleSwan
I know that it is freezing
but I think we have to walk
I keep waving at the taxis
they keep turning their lights off
But Julie knows a party at some actor’s west side loft
Supplies are endless in the evening
by the morning they’ll be gone
And everything is lonely
I can be my own best friend
I get a coffee and the paper
have my own conversations
with the sidewalk and the pigeons and my window reflection
The mask I polish in the evening
by the morning looks like shit
I know you have a heavy heart
I can feel it when we kiss
So many men stronger than me
have thrown their backs out trying to lift it
But for me, I’m not a gamble
you can count on me to split
The love I sell you in the evening
by the morning won’t exist
Hope you love my painting. If you wanna keep it and hang it on the wall at your home. Check out my landing page of my official WeChat for online shopping. The spring has come, my dog ‘WOF’ send his best greetings to you all. Let’s enjoy this happy moment with nature and those loving animals.
