Desert Huntress by CanisAlbus Desert Huntress by CanisAlbus
Ancient, primitive, wild.
African sighthound.
The Azawakh.

Staedtler pigment liner, watercolors, Faber-Castell colored pencils, gouache.

Also a sighthound that I've never seen in person. I think I've come across all the rest of the sighthound breeds that are recognized and registered in the western world at least once, but never an Azawakh.

They are one of my favorites. I want one, but I don't want to put up with the rude OMG your dog is starving! comments. I get that enough with my Italian greyhound.

Azawakhs are definitely beautiful dogs, and you drew this one so nicely.  I like the shading and orange tone to the image, as well as the simplified/stylized sun in the background.  It really makes for a nice composition.  
Your traditional work is just beautiful--especially those lovely lines and use of color.

So pretty! I like the simple sun/halo and the rich oranges and golds for the lighting.

You really like greyhounds, don't you. : ) This is cool character, are you going to use him as your character or anything?
I heard Faber Castell are really great pencils. I guess it's right.
