Artist Uses Dog's Paw Print To Create Beautiful Artwork

If you're a creative or artistic person, what inspires you?

Life is always full of potential inspirations, it's up to us to find them.

For one artist, Keiko Carter, she didn't have to look further than her golden retriever dog for help with an art project that ended up taking the internet by storm.

Carter is known for her "black and white art inspired by nature," so what better nature to use than her dog's black and white paw print?

Sharing her creative vision to TikTok, you can see the artist starting out by taking a brush to her dog's paw and painting it black before she gently places it onto a sheet of paper. With a perfect print, she's ready to start transforming it into something magical.

As she's taking the print of the dog's paw, she jokes, “Is this where you thought you’d end up in life? Yeah, me either.”

She then thanks her doggie for the help and begins to sketch in-between the toe beans to add some minor details and "some mountains." The results are quite stunning. It goes from being a basic paw print to a stunning work of art.

The video ends up getting viewed more than 5.8 million times, and the interesting design even gets a few requests for a tattoo!

Carter later responds to the tattoo requests saying that you can indeed get a personal tattoo of her work by buying a tattoo pass from her website.
