A Little Bit of Luck by zillabean A Little Bit of Luck by zillabean
I held a "Pay It Forward" giveaway contest during Christmas time where the basic gyst was that I was giving away a free chibi-style character commission, but the catch was that you could not get it for yourself; you had to nominate someone else to receive it, and give me a reason as to why they deserved it.

I love holding giveaways like that, it just makes me feel good to Give Back to a wonderful community, and I think it helps foster a sense of generosity when others Pay It Forward :)

The winner of the giveaway nominated her husband who would not be around for the holidays, as he's serving our armed forces out at sea in a submarine. The idea of a husband and father not being able to be home for Christmas with his wife and sons kind of gave me a nudge in the heart, and so I decided that I would gift the commission to them :)

So here it is; she asked that I draw her husband's cartoony lucky Irish husky dog, and so I toonified and chibi-fied him. I hope they like it; it was a lot of fun to do :)

Happy New Year, everyone :)

Toonification is a serious ailment of modern drawn characters. *Crosses arms and nods*

Fortunately no one cares. ;p

Good jorb as always. That's about all I can say.

Awwww, so sweet~

That's such a good idea for a give-away and the outcome is super cute looking. I really can see why so many people like your anthro dog style, you have got such a knack for them. :D
