I've spent a lot of time looking at this design and wondering if it actually represents a bulldog. All my fraternity brothers say it does and they like it, so I'll go with it. I think I'm at the point where I've been looking at the computer too much.
I'm going to finish my process book tonight, which means no sleep again. Tomorrow night should be stress free. Thank God.
Decided not to render too much on the computer, so it was only cleaned up in Photoshop. I wanted to keep the slightly rugged look.
