The World is Burning by CanisAlbus The World is Burning by CanisAlbus
Grigori the Deathless, my malicious borzoi character.

In case you're wondering, that white back stripe and spots are caused by vitiligo. He was originally black and tan-coloured, but depigmentation has made the fur look spotted.

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

Sorry for sudden inactivity and belated comment responses. I've been over at my grandparents for a week now and haven't been able to access internet.

Also, is it too dark/contrasted? I usually use quite light screens with low color saturation, so it's hard to tell it myself.

It's fine, the contrast. The shape of it registers first, but this is one of the better colour schemes I've seen in some time.

No, I think that the contrast is fine, but the yellow is slightly too strong-great picture!

Venäjänvinttikoirien tassut ovatkin aika erikoisia piirtää, tässä ne eivät menneet ihan nappiin. Mutta hyvä jos tykkäät~

Vitiligo, piebaldism, albimism, melanism, heterochromia... I've always been very interested on genetic mishaps, especially those connected to coloration.

He's an old badass wretch, haha

They are so beautiful, and the pups are adorable! I like how you converted they're beauty into something a bit dark and evil.

Ah wonderful :D I love how you draw canines ^^
And I love that you made the character pretty original by giving it vitiligo. But the white stripe on his back it's also very common for people or animals with piebaldism. hmm so he's gonna get a lot more white fur, right?
