I was commissioned a while back by someone (who wished to remain nameless if I uploaded this image online) to draw John from ginga nagareboshi gin --www.freewebs.com/nagareboshigi… images.wikia.com/ginga/images/… images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__c…
They asked if I could draw him looking a bit more 'realistic' and so... tada~
He's meant to be a German Shepherd dog so that's what I based his anatomy on, but I did try to keep as close as possible with his markings. It was his GNG design, not "Ginga Densetsu Weed" they wanted so... that's the one they got.
I DID do the nose stripe on the face instead of the other marks because it just seemed a bit more GSD-like... plus it's a small homage to the GDW design :I

Yeah... Normally I try not to do fanart style commissions but eh, this one was fun.
Thank you to all those who came to watch me stream this one :)

(SPOILERS!! If you haven't watched/finised GDW or GNG !) This makes me bawl. I never got over John's death, I used to watch all the tribute AMVs on repeat. I don't know why it affected me so strongly.  I think it's because I have an ultra soft spot for German Shepherds especially after having one and he was definitely my favorite character in GNG because of how he trained Gin. Definitely one of the most dynamic characters in the whole series.
