Dogs vs Cats (In Color)

I drew this in March, but I threw some color on it today because it seemed a nice fit for this week's Illustration Friday topic: Opposites. Dogs and cats both walk on four legs, and they're both pets, so I guess they're not too opposite... but they're as different as cats and dogs. Man, that was lame.

you really nailed the character of each with the facial expressions... I've always imagined that look of disdain on my cat!

I'm a fan of the original pencil art, but I'm quite happy with how the color turned out, too.

You're right. Cats ARE better than dogs!

"Hmmm. Could use some Listerine and a Tic Tac..."

I thought this was marvelous as a pencil sketch, but with color it's amazing! Love the look on both the Dog and the Cat, I've met both personalities and I'd rather have a goofball dog than a distainful cat.

Great characters, wonderful work!

Kyle Marshall said...

The design and expression at the cat is priceless.

Kevin Keele said...

This is a great drawing Shane. The shapes and expressions are spot on.

My cat's name is CatMattix (like Dogmatix from the Asterix cartoons/comics...never mind). I like him a lot, but every time he looks at me I can tell he's thinking "If I were bigger, I'd eat you."

SalGal said...

So... you wouldn't be the same Shane Lewis that grew up in Sandy, would you?

SalGal said...

Well since it turns out that you are that same Shane, hello!

I sometimes wonder whatever happened to people I used to know. I remembered something lame I said to you in 6th grade the other day. Sorry 'bout that.
