Reference for Shiki (from The World Ends with You) as a "Shibuken", or Shibu-dog.
A lot of you have been asking me to revisit my TWEWY dog stuff, so I did! :D Shiki's been deserving a proper reference for a while anyway.
I don't like how I drew her eyes here, but hopefully I'll figure it out for future (actual) artwork.
I didn't include a color chart like I have on the previous Shibu concepts for a few reasons, one being I don't need them for myself (I can just go into my file and eyedropper the unshaded layers), and another being I don't have a good PMS book anymore to get the right call-outs. Also, no one gives a shit because the eyedropper exists. xD
BY THE WAY
I am completely and totally touched that some of you out there feel respectful enough of me to ask me for permission before you draw characters as dogs using the designs I come up with. But I'd like to say that YOU DO NOT NEED MY PERMISSION TO DRAW FANART OF MY FANART. After all, I don't ask Square (etc) for permission to completely abuse their concepts. SO PLEASE, draw my Shibukens all you like!! You don't even need to credit me, though I'd like to see the art you make of course because it is relevant to my interests.
