As a artist I never really payed attention to sculpting more realistic things, but this idea kept knocking on the door for over 6 months. It’s a 50/50 combination of Adobe photoshop and Maxon Cinema 4D. All colors are real life painted canvasses and used as color map to make the color transitions more natural.”

T.G.I.F.: It’s been a long week

Christopher-Cline-goldendoodle-giant-dog

“Photographer Christopher Cline and his Goldendoodle Juji (pronounced Joo-ji) are a match made in Photoshop heaven. After moving from Virginia to Minnesota a few years ago, the artist was feeling homesick and ‘sliding into a sad place in life.’ Then, his girlfriend Christine brought home Juji. ‘I wasn’t exactly open to getting a dog,’ Cline told Mrs. Sizzle, ‘but I immediately fell in love with him. After Juji came into his life, Cline began expressing himself through Photoshop. He’d take photos of himself and Juji and later alter them to make it look as though his canine pal was a giant. ‘I just wanted to share a little of our adventures together,’ Cline explains, adding that he wants his edits to have a ‘kids’ book feel.’ Whether they’re lounging on the couch or taking on outdoor adventures, both Juji and his human seem to have a ton of fun together—no matter what their size!”
