Design in progress
No sketching yet, just research. Need to design a "dig doctor," want to avoid stereotypical looking lab dog. At the left is a collage of potential references, ripped from site whose names I no longer recall.
Reading descriptions of dog in the Chinese zodiac. According to this site http://pages.infinit.net/garrick/chinese/dog.html dogs are the most "humanitarian" of all the signs.
Need time period of doctor, location, and what kind of practice. If I choose an earlier period, the dog-tor will probably be less specialized in his practice.
There will be a dog and a human character, the human personality derived from the dog's.
Edit: Not claiming that this is original work. i traced over these pictures in photoshop to ge a better idea of how to draw a dog.
