Shydog Ref by GreekCeltic Shydog Ref by GreekCeltic
*There is a possibility that Shydog and Jacky could be scrapped in the near or distant future. There is nothing that can be said to change this (please don't try, please don't even ask). I have not made up my mind yet and will likely carry on drawing/developing her as if the possibility weren't on the table.
The only reason I'm leaving this message here is because I don't think it's fair to allow others to work on gift art of a character that may not always be around without letting them know about the possibility. If you'd like to draw art of her, that's A-okay (as long as it's appropriate non-romantic/non-sexual art).

Pbbblll, not much to say. I could have covered more with this but I just wasn't feeling it. I need a proper side ref and that's what I've got.

Do not use for roleplay.

Hey, you worked hard on this girl. If you want to omit her from the story, then by all means, you should heed the call of your instincts. It's for the good of the story. However, I see no reason to completely stop drawing her if she's still an amusing art subject for you. Maybe she doesn't need a story. Maybe you just like drawing Shydog, as do a lot of people who watch you, and that's all that truely matters. She's a muse all by herself. :] You shouldn't be burdened into making her fit into your headworld.

But if I'm reading into everything wrong, ignore me, hun. <3

I'm not going to ask you not to scrap Jacky and Shydog, you said not to ask and after all they're your creations, you can do what you want with them, but I do have to ask this: even if you scrap Shydog and Jacky, will you leave pictures with them in (not delete them)? For people who still liked them?

This ref is beautiful, hon. I love the simplicity and everything you've included ;;
It would be a shame to see shydog go, but if a character doesn't appropriately fit where you want them do, it's sometimes best ;)

Good job! This reference sheet is awesome. But I was wondering, how's food work? If Jacky has a full meal then transforms into shydog (which I assume has a larger stomach) will she feel less full? Can she actively and independently survive as an organism in her other form, like having a functioning digestive system?

Just ponder questions, you don't have to answer them if you don't want to.

I'm love her face lately. You found this great combination of shapes that simplifies into great expressions but you can bring it back to more realistic without effecting that expressivity.

This is one of my favorite character designs on dA.
