ode to a best friend by pandatails ode to a best friend by pandatails
I won't lie and say i didn't cry when i was sketching this out because i was thinking of my dog, but I watched The Fox and the Hound last week and the monologue that the Widow Tweed gave as she was driving Tod to the forest, hit me hard.

So the following text is from the movie and what i am using for insparation on this piece.



We met, it seems, such a short time ago
You looked at me - needing me so
Yet from your sadness
Our happiness grew
And I found out I needed you too

I remember how we used to play
I recall those rainy days
The fire's glow
That kept us warm
And now I find - we're both alone

Goodbye may seem forever
Farewell is like the end
But in my heart is a memory
And there you'll always be

My condolences for your dog.My granny cat going to have 15Yo next month,and i 'm scared to loose her.For your picture,so much emotion emanates from it.I love how Toothy tries to comfort him.Hiccup eyes are sad,but the way whose Tooth looks his friend is more sad than Hiccup tears.I love it.Your poem give me a knot in my throat.Nice poem too :meow: .

Love the softness of these lines. Have to ask, what's the setting you use for your brush tool to get soft lines like that? I can't figure it out for the life of me!
