Commission - Dogs of War by jocarra Commission - Dogs of War by jocarra
A massive commission for *s-state, who needed nine different characters to be designed and brought to life :) Been working on this one all month, and while I don't know much about those depicted, I believe they were all genetically engineered experiments who managed to escape and together became a band of mercenaries - bonus points if you can guess who they decided to base themselves on ;) Lots of challenges to this commission, aside from easily being the biggest single project I've worked on thus far - suffice it to say, had to look up lots of references for weapons and dog breeds :b

~60 hours?? Adobe Photoshop CS5.

The rottweiler (or is he meant to be dobie?) in the plaid kilt--that's priceless! That could be my icon what with a mother of German descent and a father of Scots descent. Well done!

Yeah, it's based on TF2 :b  Client's got a scifi story where a team of genetically modified "dog men" decide to get together and make a mercenary group, and base themselves off of "an old video game from the past" :b  So, even in canon, it's supposed to be TF2.

Though somehow, "let's go practice medicine" doesn't seem like it'd really work coming from that face. He'd be trying to be all menacing, you'd just be like 'awww, puppy'
