Dogs of War cast by Stray-Sketches Dogs of War cast by Stray-Sketches
the main cast of my story "Dogs of War"

I was going to write the title at the top, but i didnt have anything near me with a military-like font, so I just left it.

so....story explanation: the world is too polluted and poisonous to live on much longer and ever since the decline was well-known the governments of the world decided to bomb the world in case people started to trying suffer.
so, with the threat of global annihilation and the end of the human race at stake, a team of scientists started working on species-making project. They created a space craft that could house an entire town and they created a species--one with the intelligence of humans, to keep the human mind alive, but the loyalty and selflessness of a dog, to prevent the end of earth from happening again.
the end result were the Canis Sapiens.

Zabella vonCastello a.k.a. Captain Spunk was the first successful subject. After earth was bombed, finally, she escaped in the Craft with the other successful Canis-Sapiens and from there they were stuck in cold space,having all this technology and no home planet to use it on.

If this sounds familiar it is.
I came up with the storyline shortly after hearing about the movie Titan A.E. (FANATASIC movie, I suggest you watch it). At the time, it wasnt on youtube and no movie store/library had it, so my only hints were from a "Rooftops" video on youtube and various websites. (which is why Spunk's hair is purple, after Akima).

there's more to the story, but that would give away stuff in case i ever actually finish the comic and plan to show it to you guys......dont get your hopes up, though....

okay, now, on the characters, at last: again, in the middle if Spunk, the doberman. who is FEMALE. yeah, she's kinda butchy, but she's a girl. and she's straight. so dont even go there.
okay, next to her on the left is the German Shepherd hybrid, Jonathan Twitch (just Twitch for short). I knew he was going to be brown, but I had no idea what colors, so my magical pencils picked for me and I couldn't have picked better colors.
the dalmatian is Lizzy...she may or may not obtain glasses...idk...
and to the right is the border collie hybrid, Pip (his real name is Dimitri....yeah, guess where i got that name idea....but for some reason he hates his name and somehow aquired the name Pip). I both love and hate this's a little brighter than I wanted for him, but oh well...
and last but not lease, to the far right is the husky girl, Danielle/Danny. i absolutely LOVE her coloring. i wanted her to be a reddish/cream husky without resembling Jenna too much--again, i let my magical colored pencils firgure out her color and they did an amazing job. <3

The original antagonists were going to be a group of humans who also survived and escaped earth's global nuclear bombing via their own spaceship. They find the dogs' ship, basically think of the dogs as silly scientific abominations and try to kill/overtake them and their ship via their own canine-human mutation--which is twice as big, half as intelligent and trained as the human's "weapon."

I'm thinking of scrapping the whole story idea at this point, though.

Love your art by the way. ^_^
