Bailey by Idess
Pet portrait commissioned as a gift for someone who recently lost their dog, Bailey. This painting is based off of a particular photo, which holds fond memories of a day with Bailey. The original photo had a lot going on (tons of reflections, another dog in the background, etc), and I did a lot of editing and work to recreate the scene in a way that focused on Bailey.

This painting took weeks and weeks to complete, one of the most in-depth and longest-lasting paintings I've ever done!

What's even cooler is how the client presented it to her friend; she repurposed an old door and set the painting in the window area and created a unique one-of-a-kind desk. Here's a pic of it!…

Hot Spring Repose by Idess
Hot Spring Repose
Full Watercolor Painting commission for Televassi on FA of his warrior character shedding his armor and taking a relaxing dip in a hot spring as the day turns to dusk in the mountains

This commission started out as a simple watercolor pinup, but ended up taking a life of it's own and became a full blown painting! Televassi was wonderful in letting me try some new things and it worked out wonderfully :) The piece looks stunning in real life!

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
