I did this painting for one of my favorite youtubers/ streamers: It’sAGundam.
His puppy, Chuchi passed away recently and she had a part in his videos, and she used to "terrorize" him during his recording. He was having a hard time with her passing, so I painted a portrait of her as a gift.
I shipped it to his PO Box December 13th, 2018. I believe the USPS lost the package for a short time because it was sent priority mail, supposed to take 2 business days, but it didn't reach his PO Box till December 22nd, 2018.
This was the reference I used compared to the painting:
I wasn't live during the painting sessions but I did record it and create the sped up version of the painting, it is available on my Youtube channel, but you can also view it here:
He picked it up on Christmas eve, and did a Christmas fan mail youtube video, where he opened my package.
I recommend watching the whole video because he is great, but if you only want to see the reaction part for my painting, you can skip to 16:50.
Here is the video:
I was very happy with his reaction and shout out, it was way more than I expected. All I wanted to know is if he received it and liked it, but to see it in a video and be able to hear his reaction was priceless. I wanted to do something kind because I love his videos and feel his pain after having lost two kitties a few months ago, and I believe I accomplished that.
If anyone needs a portrait of a beloved pet, let me know. I am happy to do them!
