Xtortion Audio - Untouchable
The first encounter of Titan (the blue Doberman) and Echo (the Dalmatian). They're actually on the same side, in time they'll even consider each other friends, but at the beginning neither of them knew it.
Titan is a cyborg with the majority of the technology hidden under his skin. As a part of a number of surgeries, the most of his skeleton was replaced with titanium-based robotics which are rather light yet very durable, shockproof and, in theory, repairable over and over again. Many of his muscles and internal organs are also artificial. His senses, skills and abilities were greatly improved with medical fluids, causing his blood to be light blue and slightly incandescent. Titan was designed to be quick, agile and lethal in his actions.
Echo's purpose is to work as a scout and a spotter, he collects data and transmits it to his masters. He has a built-in sonar, which he's able to use when navigating through difficult surroundings. Even if he loses his vision completely he can still rely on the voices. The glowing yellow circles and lines on his body mark the places where he has subcutaneous hearing organs, he basically receives sound with his whole body. If someone tries to assault him, Echo can produce loud ultra- and infrasounds which will cripple the attacker, causing intense headache, nausea and hallucinations.
Both of them are 'elite models', produced to fill the higher ranks and carry out challenging missions. They come from long lines of genetically modified military animals, so their looks also differ a bit from the standard; they're slender in build and have extra long tails for balance.
It's actually an old piece again, from late 2012 I think. The sketch itself is from 2011, so it's even more ancient. The anatomy is just wrong here and there and the character's designs have evolved a bit after finishing of this one. Still, I like it quite a lot.
And if someone is going to mention again how Echo's design reminds them of Tron: Legacy and ask if it's a fan character... I'm starting to become slightly upset. The character was created in 2009, it's years older than the movie.
