Pug family by gnewarned Pug family by gnewarned
[link] Some of these are for sale, check it out!

A school project from this past semester at school. This started with some serious thought about show dog breeding. Dog breeders are dog lovers, and many are attached to the breed that clicks with them, so it's a tradition that'll stay around. Purebred always means inbred to some degree though so it's all kind of weird to me. I guess that's what got me started on the idea of a mock pedigree.

But I mostly did this because pugs are some hilarious fun to draw. They're a paradox of cute and tragic. And it always makes me laugh when people treat their pets like little humans.

Tried some more detailed installation work than I usually do. It looked nice but I'm not sure about doing this kind of thing again. Goes over well at school, anyway. I don't mind breaking them up, I've already given two away.

this assembly is very lovely! it's very-well balanced, and the style that the pugs are painted in really emphasizes their defining traits (wrinkles, distinctive expressions, etc.).
this reminds me of my old pug :~(

Thiiiiis is, like, my favorite thing ever. What an awesome idea (and I totally love the arrangement of them as a whole, and the concept is just so clever and cute and YEAH I love it!)! I also like that they all have a slightly different character haha ;u; Very cute.

Love it! I have a puggle named Riley, and since getting him, I will probably never own a big dog again :)

Like everyone's said, great setup. These are so cute and ugly and fun to look at. Also I... can't really imagine a dog breed that's more perfect for you.
