African hunting dogs are one of my favorite dog (wild or domesticated) and you really brought this dog to life with their shaggy fur and intense brown eyes and big ears. I've always loved their big big ears as I own a dog with giant ears. The strokes you use just really show off the how still truly wild these dogs are and how unique they are, but the real focus are Utunu's eyes (which, in all fairness, is the main feature of all dogs in my opinion) and they are truly special. You made them fierce and somehow warm and gentle. You can relate to those eyes - that warmth and gentleness we see in our companion dogs every day when we walk through the door (for those of us who own pups.)

The eyes are always one of your strong points in all your pieces, you just nail it every time.
