Dogs in Art
For centuries, dogs have been domesticated as herders, guardians and pets. People ascribe a number of human emotional attributes to dogs, such as loyalty, affection and devotion. Because of man's affinity for canines, dogs are a favorite subject for use in art.
In digital art, dogs are often portrayed in a humorous manner, lending digital art works a friendly, funny attitude. The familiar shape of dogs makes them an easy artistic subject to work with. Photoshop artists can easily exaggerate facial features to create funny caricatures and parodies of man's best friend.
