Working the Sakura Microns and the Pentel brush pens for some comicbook style inking!
The inspiration for this came from reading about middle-eastern religious beliefs surrounding the "spirits" associated with corpses and human bones. It stood out to me that a "four-eyed" dog had protective powers in regards to these spirits (this is the type of anthropological factoid that somehow sticks in my head indelibly).
In my head I saw a dog with four literal eyes, and I'm unsure why i took the more realistic approach. I've vowed to next draw something truly strange to make up for dropping the ball at an obvious weirdness opportunity.
