Hunger by CanisAlbus Hunger by CanisAlbus
Azrael, my Afghan Hound character from Daisyland rpg. 

As I've mentioned earlier, the game is set on an old amusement park called Daisyland. The park is located in the middle of a city of Vostok, which has been a ghost town for decades. The place which once belonged to humans is now inhabited by stray dogs and cats. The high walls around the amusement park are the only thing that protects them from the hellish creatures that lurk in the shadows or the city. Nälkä (Finnish for Hunger) are a result of a neurotoxin experiment on dogs; they're dark, skinny and completely blind. Their ability to think and make sensible conclusions has regressed dramatically over the time whilst their instincts have sharpened and prey drive increased. Because of the toxin, they're unable to feel full no matter how much they eat or what they eat.

Poor Azrael once entered an old warehouse full of hunger dogs. He managed to get out just barely, but seven other dogs and cats that were with him were torn to pieces and eaten. He's been a traumatized nervous wreck ever since and still feels crushed by the guilt for leading those animals to their deaths.

Graphite and Gimp.

Glad to have found an artist who is as fascinated by apocalpytic dog/wolf Roleplays as I am. love this genre. Especially when there are interesting and well-elaborated characters.

Is the so called Daisyland still up to date or has it died out like... many other famous Roleplays that I have known?

Hahah, indeed!

Daisyland is a fairly new roleplay and it's still steadily gaining new players, but sadly it's only in Finnish. Thanks for the interest though!

I almost thought it he was Chazaqiel, they look so alike in this dark theme:)

Haha, yeah, I guess it's easy to mix those two. Both of them are Afghan Hounds after all :'3
For the record, Chazaqiel is grey, he has longer fur and curly tail, his eyes are brown and he has "mandarin" mustache. Azrael is completely black, much skinnier, mostly short-haired and has a small goatee and yellow eyes~

That's a really nice piece with some great thinking behind it, I like the concept of that and the toxin :)

By the way, the link is a little malformed, it came out as "%3C/span>maatuska.net/daisy/etusivu.htm…" you probably wanna fix that :P

Lovely work. I love the foreboding, dark atmosphere. Those multitudes of maws and the yellowish light add tremendously to the piece too. Well done.

Just saying the textual content is hardly necessary at this level. Stylish, your art speaks for itself.
