Mesmerized by Midnight-Sun-Art Mesmerized by Midnight-Sun-Art
Doing a commission for :iconrainylake: featuring two African Wild dogs. As a bonus I though I would make a portrait of the two of them :)


I have to say I have really come to love these beautiful African Wild dogs while working on this. They are so beautiful, their fluffy mane, characteristic color patterns , big ears and particular their special eyes have really mesmerized me.


These beauties are unfortunately endangered.

The detail here is astounding - I'm especially impressed with the detail in the fur around their necks and ears!

It is. I hope to one day see some in the wild. Hoping real hard. I guess if things dont change that will be almost impossible soon :( Thank you! Their fur pattern were a real challenge. So im quite proud of those actually! Good practice :)

I haven't even seen real live ones...not even in local zoos; The same goes for cheetahs. I want to see one in real life walking at least </3 I know right? X'2 You're welcome~

Do you know if there is someone doing a breeding program to help increase the population? As they do with cheetahs and such.. I really hope so, they seem to be so rare that everyone who get photos of them write that they were lucky to see them! I wish I was a millionaire, then I would start my own charity for these cuties.

That is absolutely ridiculous. My goal for life is now to become triquadrotionair and spend all my money and time on help saving this incredible creature. As well as the polar bear, those are adorable too and deserve more attention.
