Okay, folks. I started this image back in November of last year, so sayeth the "created" property on my .psd. Recently I've been increasingly interested in a number of things
has been into, and as a result I dug up this old piece (which was just a soft piece of lineart back then) and forced myself to finish it.
This is Swifty's fursona, Swift, hoping the newly-whippetized Pristine will be her friend. I can guarantee Pristine, usually a wolf-anthro, is just thinking "Okay, I'll play with you... but how will I walk on these stick-legs without them snapping?"
Don't even get me started on the anatomy problems. After fiddling with Swift's shoulder/ribcage for hours (the whole reason I set it aside for so long in the first place), I pretty much just gave up. And I realized Pristine's chest is rather broad for a whippet, as well. I am hoping I got Swift's markings correct (they're supposed to be white, the shading I did turned them gray), and that Pristine doesn't look too far-fetched in her cream and gray (I really wanted to do lavender but refrained).
And you can tell the ball and frisbee were sort of added in later; I needed to fill some negative space.
All-in-all I'm just happy I got it done. I definitely have a bit more knowledge about whippet anatomy; it took a lot of staring at whippet artwork (mostly Swift's, of course) to gain any ground in that arena.
