A Deck with Extra Aces by CanisAlbus A Deck with Extra Aces by CanisAlbus
Garzia the Borzoi mongrel. A lifetime of chain smoking has tainted his appearance completely, turning his color palette into shades of rust and tobacco discoloration. No matter how intoxicated he is, he's simply invincible in the game table, though some of his gaming tactics are more than slightly questionable.

Staedtler pigment liner, Gimp.

As a completely random side note, during coloring this I found out that the soundtrack of Sylvain Chomet's "The Triplets of Belleville" is available on Spotify. I've been a bit obsessed about it and it's music lately, so my joy cannot be contained. If you're not familiar with the film and bizarre animations are your thing, I strongly recommend taking a look if you possibly can.

God, this is such an atmospheric piece...love that brownish tint all over it, reminds me of cigarette smoke in the air. And I can hear his devilish laughter. I really admire the way you draw paws.

Fantastic piece, and it looks gorgeous as an avatar :)
Great to see that you're so productive at the moment!

What an expression!  I love that look of glee on his face, and how he is holding the cards in his toes!  A very fun and interesting pose.

Uh, I know "the triplets of Belleville"!
But unfourtunatly, I never saw it :P

Did you know Rene Laloux' "La planete sauvauge"? 
It's an amazing animation movie from the 70th.

I think, you could like it :meow:

By the way: The devilish laugh of Garzia is so delicious :meow:

Ihana! Tulin jo heti tumblurissa iloiseksi kun näin tämän siellä!
Hahmo sopisi kuin kura kengän päälle jonnekin villin lännen maailmaan (tai vastaavaan).
Tulee jostain syystä kovat Cy Tolliver vibat tästä, vaikkakin hahmosi vaikuttaa astetta liukkaammalta veikolta.

Ja Jei, Bellevillen kolmoset! Mainitsen nyt vielä Illusionistin, jos haluat nähdä samoilta tekijöiltä toisenkin elokuva, ellet ole sitä jo nähnyt.
Mutta olen samaa mieltä soundtrackin kanssa. Varsinkin alun laulu on kunnon korvamato. :'D
