    So, a little history behind this one. Oskar is a Rottweiler of Youtube fame. I instantly fell in love with him (I am an avid dog lover and Rottweilers are by far my favorite). Almost 7 months ago, he got hemangiosarcoma and sadly died last month. He was only given a few weeks when he was first diagnosed. He made it 6 months. I had been in contact with his owner throughout the ordeal and she was devastated.

    I originally drew Oskar last year because his owner commissioned me. Oskar got diagnosed with cancer before I got the first drawing done. His owner was justifiably a mess so I sent her the first drawing for free. This one is for me to keep because even though I had only seen Oskar through the internet, I loved him as if he was my own pet. Since I currently can't have a pet of my own, I will keep Oskar's spirit with me in the form of this drawing.

    Yeah I liked this on YouTube when I saw you had it up, it is a beautiful drawing and I think it does Oskar's memory justice. :)

    Maybe later. Seems like yours would be harder to draw because they are white fur is horribly difficult to draw (see here. The darker pup took about 4 hours, the lighter one took 6 and it isn't nearly as detailed). I'm gonna be drawing faces for a bit because I'm losing touch in that area. I'll definitely hit you up if I feel like doing another animal :)

    Amazing drawing as ever, and a really fitting tribute with the video. Rest in peace Oskar
