Objection by CanisAlbus Objection by CanisAlbus
Fun fact: Chicago, the blue Doberman presented here, is actually one of the most difficult characters of mine to portray correctly. (The other ones most likely being Radon and Muertos).
And it's not because of details included to the design or anything, it's those bloody colors. Seriously, to archieve that bluish grey needed, I had to use several layers of watercolor and colored pencils, and I'm still not quite satisfied with the outcome.
Of course there's no such problem when drawing digitally askjdfasjd.

Oh and the scars are still a part of his design, I just thought to try and see how he looks without them, like in the time when he still worked as a guard dog before being completely mauled.

Black Staedtler pigment liner, Faber-Castell colored pencils, watercolors, cardboard and a color map.

I love this!  He's such a beautiful dobie with a great expression (It would be a shame for him to get mauled).

i forgot to mention that i absolutely adore his round eyebrows!!!
they're expressive without looking like too much! which is hard to do with animals

Well, credit for the design goes to *NinjaKato. She's the original owner of Chicago, I just adopted the character from her a bit over a year ago :'3
I'm glad you like the piece C:

Such a nice doberman is seldomly seen, I simply love your style. I always have many difficulties drawning their anatomy correct, but I never was able to achieve this quality! (:

Yes, Dobermans have quite a distinctive anatomy, with their angular appearances and sloping backs and all. It took a while for me to get to know that right :'D

Tosi nätit värit Chicagolla! Ja tykkään noista kuvioistakin. (: Lisäksi herralla on tässä varsin söpö, ehkä hieman epäilevä ilme, jota kauniin väriset silmät korostaa.
