Many childern grow up with a dog in the family. I happen to be one of those people.
I had a big ol’ german sheppard named “Major” and we were best buds. Whenever I’d get grounded (which was quite often), the only time I would be allowed out was when I took Major for a walk. In my teenage years Major and I spent alot of time together.
He was a protective companion, like dogs can be. He wouldn’t let anything harm me… and no one would try.
For no other reason then because I fed him and walked him, I was his “master.” He had unconditional love and loyalty to me and would obey my every command. He was willing to lay his life down for mine and I was willing to do the same.
When I read about the theme “Master and Servant,” the relationship between a boy and his dog stuck out among the rest.
I wanted to illustrate the special bond a person has with his/her dog. Through this theme, I came up with an idea: A boy takes his dog to get his bike back from the local bully.
The twist: the dog is the biggest scariest mutant dog ever.
The setting: It takes place in the ghetto. A place that would be dangerous for even grown-ups, but beware, it’s not the gangsters or criminals you should be most frightened of - it’s a 6 year and his gigantic mutant doggie.
The senerio: The boy takes his dog to get his bike back from the neighbourhood bully. The bully is unaware of the boy and dog’s presence and is laughing while telling the story of how he took a little boy’s shiny new red bike. He’s about half a second away from realizing that that was THE DUMBEST THING he’s ever done in his life.
It’s been a pleasure.

Hi Bobby,
Your character designs are so funny, unique and awesome as usual.

But the thing that I like the most about your piece is the creativity! Your concept is one of my favorite. So much character.

I really like the relationships between the characters… it’s something that anyone can relate to, especially dog owners.

Congrats on another great piece… i think this one’s my favorite out of all your work. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I don’t think a lot of people saw this one, compared to other entries in the contest so I’m glad you put it in the final 2d art section

Excellent work digital_bobert! :smiley:

Love the idea, characters and lighting too! Only thing that kind of bothers me is the buildings and sky in the background look a little flat compared to the rest. But, overall a fantastic piece! :thumbsup:

killer, I love it.


#18

I hope I told you how much I liked this when I first saw it. I like it even better now, because I just realized the dog’s chin is casting a shadow on the bully’s shoulder and neck! That means bowser’s lower lip is almost touching the guy’s head!

I love this piece - it just gets better and better, with each viewing.

Your gifts in creating great graphics is remarkable, your gifts as a storyteller are utterly breathtaking!

I remember seeing this when looking through the master and servant entries…

Its a great concept, executed extremely well - i’m glad you kept working, took it to the next leve, and refined it to this point - the end result is great.

Keep up the great work.
