Continuing with the 'inspired' series of Pokemon. This one was rushed, clearly. I'm working on a revised Duality app, and I really want to get it done. I needed to redraw my Houndour, so here it is. The references I used were all pictures I've taken of my own dog, who, as the title suggests, is a German shepherd and Labrador retriever mix. That deep lab chest looks really weird with a lanky shepherd body, and I love it (pictures of him can be found here- [link]
I wanted to go for a more realistic approach to the bones all around Houndour's body, so I just made them all stripes/markings, and I like it a lot this way, especially the skull marking on the head.
