This is my character design for the Home Contest! We were supposed to design a dog for the comic, and I love the design for this one.
His story line is very open; he could be a lone wolf or have connections to the Meteor tribe (or even connections with Aira). Basically I thought it would be cool to add a mystical medicine-man type dog to the mix. He is blind and does not remove that blindfold, but survives very with heightened senses. The paint pattern is somewhat random, but the diamond patter on the chest is a native American symbol for a medicine man's eye.
Personally I love this character and will probably keep drawing him!
