Goes with this one --




This would be Hougen, the (psychopathic) Great Dane antagonist of the show/manga.
More information about this guy here -- ginga.wikia.com/wiki/Hougen

This is the 2nd part of the same commission and now it it completed! :phew:

Basically I was commissioned by a friend of mine a while back to draw a couple characters from the two shows.
However, they wanted me to draw them a bit more 'realistically'-- so here you go.
They chose the characters.
Hougen's anatomy wasn't too horrible in the anime (other than the obvious f*ck ups of the animation team) but it DID bother me quite a lot that he didn't have those big jowls that Danes have. His head looked more like that of a Staffy or even a Mastiff(bull) than a Dane. So... I wanted to give him those big drooly, droopy, dopey jowls.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by to watch me stream this. It was fun :)
I don't own Hougen or John or Ginga. But this image is mine (more or less) since I drew it.
Yeah... Normally I try not to do fanart style commissions but eh, this one was fun.

Now that you mention it, it was really strange than Hougen and Genba didn't have the signature Great Dane jowls. I even owned one, when I was little. 
I really appreciate the texturing in the shadows of this piece. Very nice work. :meow:

This is really good! And I like the anatomically correct way you did it. I've noticed that male animals in animations are anatomically female. I feel pretty bad for them because I have no idea how they go to the bathroom.

Can you draw people? Because I can draw people but I can't draw dogs

Somewhat, but my human skills are a bit rusty.
I used to draw them a lot but ever since my niche kind of went on to animals, creatures, aliens, and robots I've gotten rather lacking :I 
Still kind of trying to find an easier and more effective method to drawing them as well.

Your dogs/canines are amazingly realistic and stylish, another artist told me she can only draw dogs and has an extremely hard time drawing people

I love how realistic this is. His face is amazing! I love his front legs as well. The shading is just superb. :D I'm glad to see you didn't get a whole shirt storm because of his gentitals. It's nice to see mature comments on this piece instead of "OMG YOU CAN SEE HIS PENIS!!!" lol.

NinjaKato Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2013
Haha thanks :) 
Yeah, I'm glad people realize that male animals have genitalia and since I was meant to draw him realistically giving him anatomical parts was kind of part of the concept. He's a boy and therefore if he's an unaltered male he'd have a penis and testicles. Anyone who can't handle that fact needs to go back to biology class :XD: 
Thanks again :)

I have to walk a Great Dane before and it was a workout to just keep them from running. But there nothing but big softies that fit the old saying Gentle Giants very well.
