This dog is enormous – the size of a man – and beautiful. As one can guess, lying on the floor of this old-fashioned pub, Rufus gets a lot of attention and is easily the star in any place he is in. Rufus has received attention from both the Daily Mail and Evening Standard newspapers. I’m not a fan of dogs, but I’m a fan of Rufus! He is probably the reason I have been to this pub several times.

It took me only a few minutes to create this image with just a few lines and small amount of shading. I was the first digital drawing I was ever happy with.

Postscript: I drew him again a year later
