After the Unknown Heroes have managed to protect the village of Hammerhurst from the invading goblin hordes and their cruel overlord Gload, they follow the hordes trail into the deserts of Samalune and the doorstep of the mountain fortress of Ogakan'keth, home of the Moagul'kai. Once they have defeated the myriad of necrominic nomads, destitute desert dingoes and maligned mennacingly monsterous Moagul'kai, the Unknown Heroes are faced with the final barrier (or so they think! predictable plot twist) between the Fortress' Lord; Belligerent, brutal Benny the bastard and their persuit of the Gro'Tpecnoc's Ruby-red-rod of radical reversal;
the Nasty, nefarious Naioglar.
This heavily armoured, armed and highly aggitated caninus giganticus had been bread by the barely bearable boney-backed giants of the desert as a guard for their magnificently massive mounds of gold and gems though through constant feeding of tidbits by the Moagul'kai it soon turned on its former masters and became the favoured pet of Belligerent, brutal Benny the Bastard.
special attacks include;
Chase the tail A devastating whirlwind of steel and spittle.
Down boy! Belligerent forward paw attack.
Bone Breath/Dogfood Flatulate A Cloud of nautious gas, stunning the unprepared player/s.
Shake-it-to-pieces End-move that sends bloody chunks flying all about.
Play Dead Doggy plays dead at 90% health loss (hopefully) fooling the player/s out of their hard earned $ by jumping into a special move combo as they goto move on;
Rollover & Cock leg Doggy rolls over the player/s before cocking his leg and unleashing a final devastating blast that consumes its remaining health.

hey jonoy - that's one mean lookin' poodle! the fluffy bits of white around the hind legs are crackin' me up.
hey w!l - the 'gladiator' status increases with the number of posts you have. it has no bearing on your abilities as an artist, mind you. as you can see in my post that i have quite a few under my belt, but not as many as say fozzybar. he's got a higher gladiator status than myself, but they're just words. you can look up the names in wikipedia (eg andabatae) - here's a direct link for you to read and enjoy. the ca admins have a creative eye for naming conventions: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andabatae
at any rate, turn that frown upside down....you'll be a level 2 gladiator in no time (well, as long as you continue to post).
sephone - yep! got your email....responded back already.
Cereberus' little brother Barberous' , three heads and one foul temper. the Saliva is super acid so much so that it burns the dog when it flys around thus increasing the foul temper. When not growling at each other the heads can coorperate and inflict poisonous bites in three directions at once.

Are you thinkin' of Cerberos, a three headed dog, guardian of the gates of Hades? Original mythos had this dog with quite a number of heads, if memory serves me correctly, so you can go hog....er...dog wild!
Good doggie....stay....sit....play dead....stay dead.
yep He'd be the one...some how I only ever thoguht he had 3 heads though...and Fenris only has one..and chains, oh yeah thanks I forgot the chains
some details....sorry to clog up this thread with background 411 on the topic.
In Greek mythology, the three-headed watchdog who guards the entrance to the lower world, the Hades. It is a child of the giant Typhon and Echidna, a monstrous creature herself, being half woman and half snake.
Originally, the dog was portrayed having fifty or hundred heads but was later pictured with only three heads (and sometimes with the tail of a serpent). Cerberus permitted new spirits to enter the realm of dead, but allowed none of them to leave. Only a few ever managed to sneak past the creature, among which Orpheus, who lulled it to sleep by playing his lyre, and Heracles, who brought it to the land of the living for a while (being the last of his Twelve Labors).

Sam, the (late) ugliest dog in the world, reminds me of the rat monkey from 'brain dead'....
but he is an attractive pooch for inspiration
that looks like a chinese crested dog (hairless). what a pose. almost like stripes from gremlins.
luvit, dave, big smiles but what about the sauerkraut attack??? maybe 7th level...
Hahahah Red, that's so terrifying.
It's when you can't hear the bats, that's when the bats are coming.

OoooOo... I'm gonna have some fun with this one. :p
masque & silentkitty - lol....thanks! just having fun today.
Hmmm... Fox's WIP is starting to resemble my dog.... kinda freaky.
That rat-dog is awesome! That isn't from that old horror flick "Dead Alive" is it?
These colors are kicking my ass for some reason..

Gee... I hope I make the cut, this is my first COW!
Obviously WIP: A preliminary silhouette sketch.
This creature appears to be one black mass of dog-like shadow, with burning gouts of flame seeping through the wafting form. It's standard attack is a bite and scratch combo, but the true power strike is it's body lighting up into brilliant white-hot fire and charging down it's victim. It has the ability to split into 2 smaller versions of itself for faster attacks.
Heres my wip. Appropriately named "Spike" is an undead dog that was beaten and neglected. Rising from the grave it expresses it's anger on anything moving. Spike is lightning quick. He first tries to pounce on the victim impaling their legs with his hind legs, effectively imobilizing them (or seriously slowing them down).
This took me a lot longer than I thought it would so I didn't have time to do a background. I've seen some people do their picture in bw first (to get down value and forms) and then add color later, but I haven't learned how to do it yet.

oh, don't eat anything while clicking on the link...
christ.... well fozz dude, i guess now and then God gets drunk too.
here`s my humble contribution to the pound.
C.O.W. - #037: CC Huge Dog Endboss
"Tubrya`s Blind Hound" the enormous, was created by the gods to guard the entrance to their world.
it was given the power of hell-fire, unleashed through its dead eyes
upon brave yet inconsequential arrivals.

Looks great, Chuck, very intimidating. And it's great to see your sense of humor in full swing, Red.
Here's a very rough preliminary sketch of my idea, the ferocious Giga Pinscher - the final boss from the upcoming game MailMan II: Return to Sender. It'll probably undergo some big changes once I get a WIP underway, and with any luck I'll manage to scrape enough time together to finish the entry before the deadline.
And for good measure, a quick little idea sketch for the game's main character.
Pretty much any mailman will tell you it totally sucks getting stuck with the route that includes the local military biogenetics lab.
