Alaskan Malamute pup and her prey by Elkenar Alaskan Malamute pup and her prey by Elkenar
A contest prize for :iconmego-sama-lady-sir:, her Alaskan Malamute Nika. She's an adult already but I wanted to draw her as a puppy.

This drawing is based on this photo [link] but as you can see, I made my own version of it. I tried my best to get Nika's markings etc. right by watching Mego-Sama-Lady-Sir's photos and videos so I hope this looks like her.

I had to use my school's scanner and it did some funny things. Some parts of the drawing are paler-looking than the others... I tried to correct it with photoshop but I may re-scan this later with my family's scanner next time I visit them.

Made by 5H, 2B and 8B pencils, 0,5 and 0,3 HB mechanical pencils. A4 paper.

Art (c) me.

Like always, I'd like to hear what you think about this. Advice and critique is welcome too.
