Dock Dog by deskridge Dock Dog by deskridge
A brown and white English pointer leaps off an old wooden dock into a small tree-lined lake. Behind him, a barefoot young woman in jeans has just thrown a ball for her canine companion to retrieve.

This image was inspired by something I saw this weekend. My family and I went to see something called DockDogs, which bills itself as the world’s largest canine aquatics competition. Essentially, it was a long jump contest for dogs. The owner or trainer would throw a ball or some similar dog toy across a pool and their dog would dash down a runway and leap in after it. I'd never heard of such a thing before seeing it. It was rather fun to watch.

If you follow me on facebook, deviantart, or fineartamerica, you'll see that this is rather compositionally similar to my next major work that I'll be releasing in a few days. I didn’t realize it until I was about to publish this one. I guess it's just what I had on my mind. Consider it a sort of preview.


Thanks for looking!

Oh hi!! Being the pic from some time ago, i wasn't sure... :)
I wanted to ask you wich model or set you used for the dog, in this pic or any other of yours. Also wanted to know if this model is "anatomically correct", that is, if the dogs have genitals that can be shown.
If this character or set doesnt have it, can you direct me to someone who can know about this?

Thank you!!

It's just the daz millinium dog: www.daz3d.com/millennium-dog-b….  There is a male version of the dog, but the genitals are still just a bump in the mesh.
