Dog and Surfboard by deskridge Dog and Surfboard by deskridge
A dog sits upon some rocks on a beach. Next to him a surfboard is propped up on those same grassy stones. Is he a loyal hound, waiting for the surfer to return? Or, is he just waiting for the surf to pick up so he can go surfing himself? After all, there are a few dogs out there who can ride the waves.

School is already starting for most kids in the Atlanta area this week. Summer vacation has pretty much come to an end (though, here in the Atlanta area, summer weather usually continues on well into October). So, I figured I’d create an artwork to say goodbye to the beach trip season. I know it would make more sense for the surf board to be stuck in the sand, but, compositionally, it fit better up on the rocks. It kind of gives the impression of a surfing monument up there.

Note: this scene uses purchased content.

Tools used: Poser, Vue, GIMP

Thanks for looking!

Dog's definitely waiting for the surf to pick up.  Look at that face.  I love your clouds.  They just work.

Beautiful. One of the things I appreciate most in your work is the balance of painterliness and true-to-life detailing. And the light here is just lovely, with that extra bit of glow on the surfboard at the center. :love:
