ghostbusterPugMy son requested a drawing of a puppy this morning. I started off thinking about what I wanted the puppy to be doing. About two years ago I was planning a series of experimental flash games based around a pug in a spacesuit. I was about to draw that character holding his helmet under his arm, but Ghostbusters popped into my mind. I was smiling at several points while drawing this.

There is a crack in the ugly scale through which pugs slip though and escape to the cute scale… usually. I remember going with my parents to visit some relative, a great-aunt I think. She had a pug. The eyes were the worst. They weren’t the adorable eyes normally attached to a pug. It’s hard to describe.

Todays picture was sketched in Painter12 with a gel layer over top for a quick colour job.
