I don't know if it's intentionnal or not but that's exactly how I imagine Huan. After all ME is supposed to be our continent a long time ago so our dogs have to come from somewhere. As I was not really accurate in dogs I made some research and for me Huan could be two types of dogs : the English Dogue or the Irish Wolfhound. They are both an antic british race of dogs (as ME is really anglo-saxon influenced) and the Irish Wolfhound is the most charismatic kind in my opinion, and also he is used to hunt wolves and bears.

So I love your drawing for this combination of canonical seriousness and artistical talent. :)

This is probably the best picture of Huan I have seen! It's amazing that you could make a dog's face look so intelligent *dodges rocks thrown by dog-lovers.* No I like dogs too, but seriously, he looks like he is contemplating the morality (or lack thereof) of the actions of his masters. :D

love this, the colors are so ethereal there's a sense of pride, loyalty, sadness and tranquility here that is rarely captured with painting animals. Love it.

Refreshing to see someone else who views Huan as a real wolfhound . :D Great job with the colours there, too! :clap: ... :+fav: What technique did you use for this picture?

A very unique depiction of the burning of the ships. I never thought of Huan being there before, though now of course it seems obvious that he was . . . So sad, and I love the lighting.
