Someday by Skailla Someday by Skailla
"Someday, I'll get out of here! There will be no walls to hold me! You'll see. I'll live the most wonderful adventures a dog could ever dream of having!"

"But don't you like it here? With mama and papa?"

"I do, Theo. But I think life can be so much more!"


More of Steban and his little brother, Theo :meow:
I don't know why, but I really like drawing these two together.

Steban, Theo and their older brothers, Mitchel and Darren were all homeschooled. Their father, Eric, was overprotective and rarely ever let them go out of the house. This only made Steban's thirst for adventure grow, together with his urge to leave home. Steban never really realized the value of his family and his old life until he was too far to turn back :ohnoes:

Oh, and Eric was the owner of a library. That's why their house is full of books!:la:

I was listening to this song while drawing this: [link]
pay attention to the lyrics :heart: I just love them so much!
And it has a lot to do with Steban!


Today is meh berthdaaaay :iconexcitedlaplz: :cake:

omg THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR THE HAPPY BIRTHDAY WISHES!!!! you people are AWESOME!!!!!!:hug::glomp::hug::glomp::giggle:

    Really creates a nostalgic atmosphere. Poor Steban. He forgot what's important.

x_X sorry but this story seems way to cliche for me to handle haha not trying to be to mean about it i know you have only posted a couple of posts about your story and it may just be my taste of stories since i like more complex and well ones that make sense (hence dogs that live like humans? what? XD)

not trying to be mean or gain attention i mean i do like this picture the anatomy could use a bit of work but the backgrounds pretty decent like i like how you used textures on the books on the shelf :D

KoMaki-Cookee Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Dude I keep forgetting to watch you!! >A< -watches you- There :meow: I seriously love your art even though, I don't draw animals that much anymore I want to start again and I must say that your art can become a large inspiration for me to start drawing in a disney style as I would like to start to try and do that, I love every drawing you have done and I wish I could afford photoshop ;w; but I cant uwu I only have paint tool sai which is good and easy to use, but I've seen photoshop is AWESOME as well XD Thank You for putting up drawings!!:D

Another brilliant art piece from you. :) I love the details in the picture, like the books and the curtains and the dogs, etc. So many books...! :D And speaking of 'adventure', while I was looking at German Malinois (German Shepherd/Belgian Malinois hybrids) pictures on Google, found a picture of a dog chasing sheep. It looks a lot like Steban: [link]
