Bryce by Idess
Graphite Pet Portrait I completed recently of Bryce, a shepherd mix whom I've actually had the pleasure to work with myself! I'm pleased to have been able to draw Bryce and capture his funny personality on paper :3

So happy to have been commissioned for a graphite (aka pencil) portrait! Most people enjoy the colors of watercolor but there's something about working in graphite that brings me back to my college art classes and I just love how they come out!

Happy Corgi Vinyl Sticker by Idess
Happy Corgi Vinyl Sticker
My new Vinyl sticker design is here! What would Idess merch be without at least ONE adorable corgi? ;3

Like my other vinyl sticker designs, this is just a preview of an actual sticker that is available to buy from me!…

Long-lasting durable vinyl sticker.
Sticker is roughly 4.5x6" in size.
Waterproof and rated for 5+ years outdoors, these vinyl stickers will last! Application instructions are included on the backside of all stickers.

Buy here!…
See all my homemade merch here!…

Happy Nude Deer 2015
It's that time of year again!
My annual Happy Nude Deer (Or Happy New Year for you illiterate folks ;) ).

Nude Deer '14
Nude Deer '13
Nude Deer '12
Nude Deer '11
Nude Deer '10
Nude Deer '09
Nude Deer '08
Nude Deer '07

This year's Nude Deer is a Roe Deer! He's just here to party and have fun; let's make this year AMAZING!
This is also a day later than I traditionally post my nude deers and I apologize! I had it halfway done yesterday before I got way too busy and had to leave home for the new year celebrations. But I hope you all enjoy just the same :)

Here's to the New Year (Nude Deer!), I hope you all have a good one!

Jethro by Idess
A pet portrait commission of the client's mother's dog, and was given as a Christmas gift this year!

This portrait was a bit more difficult than some others, as the reference photos were a bit blurry and had poor lighting. Much of the portrait was created by me to bring it to a "perfect portrait", which I am glad I have the ability to do instead of just copying straight from the photo :)
I've actually seen this dog in my Agility classes, and it was really cool seeing him in action and secretly gleeful that I was painting him for a surprise gift ;)
Watercolor Bust Pet Portrait
Watercolor on Hot Press Paper, 9x12"

Thank you everyone who bought something from my stores to help pay for Chloe's vet bills (More info:… ), it's not much but every little bit helps and makes me feel optimistic that we can get through this OK :)

The coupon code "CHLOEEATSROCKS" at will work until midnight Tuesday June 10th. I still have an original up for sale there plus tons of prints, bookmarks, magnets, and other art merch that is discontinued so this could be your last chance to buy some of these things!

I'll be working on the commissions I took last week and depending on how quickly I can finish them I'll probably be looking at opening more. I wasn't planning on doing a lot of commissions this year but now that I owe more money than I ever have in my life, I need to re-evaluate some of my earlier life decisions XP

Thank you again to everyone who's helped out and bought something, it is much appreciated. As for an update on the little dog herself, she's doing fantastic :) We are seeing improvement every day and her appetite is growing back to normal, which is good. She gets her stitches out next week and at least for now and the foreseeable future I don't see any complications arising (knock on wood!).

AnimalApps Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2014
Hi -
My wife and I are starting a small mobile phone Apps Business to raise money for animal rescue and welfare charities.

We are making mostly games with animal themes.  We really like your artwork here on DeviantArt and wondered if you'd like to get involved.
If you are please let us know.  There wouldn't be much money in it, typically $100 to $400 dollars for a set of artwork for a game but we would also give you credit
for your work and include a link to your Deviant Art page or any other site you preferred.

Best Wishes
Chris and Ursula Rose
