A couple of months old piece again. This time it's a fan art of Akame, a white shinobi dog from Yoshihiro Takahashi's Ginga Nagareboshi Gin. For those of you, who aren't familiar with the original story, maybe this clears it out a bit:"Akame is the leader of the ancient group of ninja dogs, the Iga Clan. The Iga dogs and the rivaling clan, the Koga dogs, have been fighting for decades over territory and the sacred documents which the Iga clan conseals within their base.
Akame fights with the Koga clan's leader, Kurojaki. He gets badly wounded, but taken to safety by the tora-ge Akita, Gin. After Gin defeats Kurojaki, Akame burns the Iga clan's base, the Iga house, to erase all memories of the past along with the sacred documents. His nemesis, Kurojaki, dies in the flames."

Well, my rendition of Akame... doesn't look like Akame at all. Maybe it's the eyes, the character is always said to have red eyes, but when I was looking for references about it, I didn't see a single picture of him with eyes of that color.
Instead, they were usually portrayed black or grey, so I thought to give this version dark eyes as well.
This also looks more like a wolf than a dog. Funny how my wolves usually look like dogs and now even dogs look like wolves. Whut.
