I am a digital artist, and the Japanese Akita is my main focus. I do draw other breeds as well, although I stick to canines only. I started drawing a few years ago, but did traditional works back then until I got my first tablet. Art has ever since been a huge interest for me, and I have worked very hard to try and create a unique style of my own.

I always do my best in keeping the anatomy, fur colors and patterns as realistic as I can, but love the idea of giving my characters human accessories, like armor, swords, jewelry, ect. You will find a lot of this in my gallery if you take a look. I have a big interest in ancient Japanese culture, and have for a long time been fascinated by samurais and Japanese arts and crafts from the old days. If you have similar interests, and like the idea of canines in ancient style armor, then you might like my works :)

I have a huge obsession with the Japanese Akita, which is why my art is mainly focused on them. To me they are the most wonderful and beautiful beings that has ever set paw on the planet. I have a long coated red Akita in real life as well, named Toshi.

No, I am not a furry.

Thanks for visiting!

Interests

Seems like quite a few of you guys wanted to see Ginga fanart from me, so I’ve decided to do what I mentioned I’d do in my poll :) I have also decided that I will go backwards with the generations, which means I will draw the litter from GDWO first then GDW and GNG last. I want to point out a few things first tho, the idea with this is to have these characters drawn in more realistic anatomy and colors, and because all of them except the GNG ones are cross breeds, I will keep that in mind with the anatomy. I know they are said to be Akitas, but it’s not really the case. I mean the ones from GDWO have more Kishu in them than Akita! It will obviously affect the anatomy. Just wanted to mention that as I am picky with things like this.

 

I also want to point out that, since it is fanart, the fur colors I use might not be a 100% identical match to the character’s original color as I will go with natural colors and tones. For example, I will NOT draw blue dogs. I have a friend who is a huge fan of the Ginga series who have helped me already pick colors for all the characters that I will use :) I’m fully aware that some or even a lot of you who might have your own opinions about character colors, but do keep in mind that the colors I choose to use, are colors that me and my friend see these characters in. If you do not agree with the color picks, then I’m fully okay with that. We're all entitled to our own opinions! If you want to comment about it/discuss the colors, then go ahead :). But if you’re going to be rude/immature about it, then spam is what I will see it as and also flag it as.

 

This is all going to be a slow progress as there are quite a few characters to draw. But these drawings will be simple, and they won’t have any backgrounds besides a simple color and their name written in kanji/katakana beside them or behind them. They will also be drawn in cel-shading style to speed things up and because I think it fits manga/anime characters pretty well even tho it is my own style I will use of course :)

As usual with my critiques, I will be judging everything based on your experience, which will be the same with the ratings :) First off,...

Exploring the world by Panda-kiddie

This is honestly one of the best wolf themed photo manipulations I've seen so far. The colors are so vivid, and everything just blends ...

Thinking about drawing solo drawings of the main characters and their siblings from GNG, GDW and GDWO. Is that something you guys would like to see?
