Bearhound Legacy by CanisAlbus Bearhound Legacy by CanisAlbus
Father and son. Two leaders of Ōu. Both legendary bear hunting dogs. Gin, the courageous hero of the series Ginga Nagareboshi Gin and his right-minded son Weed, whose story is told in Ginga Densetsu Weed.

Instead of just imitating the style of the original series, I tried to make these two to look what trey really are: two silver brindle Akita Inus. I haven't had drawn any dogs of that specific breed before this work, so they might not be that perfect, but hopefully it's somewhat possible to recognise them.

This was one of those works that you just work and work for hours and put so much effort into it while hating it furiously during the whole process. Nothing went really right on this. The background spilled awfully on the dogs and it took me some extra time to repair the damage. Also neither of my two scanners did proper work with this, the scans always turned out messy and blurry no matter I did. Arrjakshdarauh. But after a months of wait to submit this, I don't think I dislike it as strongly as in the beginning. Actually, I kinda like the cold and starry feeling in this.

They look amazing. I love how you made them look more realistic and gave they both silver fun unlike that weird blue they gave Gin in the GDW anime.
