Misc.: Cop Dog by NicGiraffe Misc.: Cop Dog by NicGiraffe
Believe it or not, but fan art isn't the only thing I draw. :-P This guy is for a completely original story I have in mind. I'm not sure if I should post more of my original art here though, since I’ve heard some unsettling things about DeviantART's policy towards original works, so I might post the rest of it elsewhere.

The story could probably best be described as a combo of Stargate, X-Men, G.I. Joe, and The Secret Of NIMH, and is (partly) set on an planet called Cirrus. This is Springer Caniche, a standard poodle, one of the main heroes and captain of his local police force (btw, they're probably not going to be called police in the end, since they did develope on an alien world). Despite being the only poodle on a force dominated by large dog breeds like german shepherds and horses (since we use those animals in police work here, I figure they'd make suitable police officers), Springer rose up through the ranks to become captain of the precinct. Thanks to his experience and intelligence, he ends being picked by his goverment to be leader of a team specially chosen to battle the major story villain.

This is the first sketch in which I got the basic design of his face and hair right (thanks to :iconshelzie: gorgeous poodle designs), though I'll probably experiment with his design a little more. Springer really doesn't have much of a personality yet, but I do want to avoid making him the boring flawless leader type or the reluctant leader/hero stereotypes often seen.

Great job on the sketch work. I don't know if I can help much on the characterization, but I HAVE thought of A COUPLE of flaws for the character to make sure he doesn't seem perfect:

1. Has a habit of OVER-thinking almost everything and rarely trusts his instincts without plenty of hard evidence. The upside is that this trait enables him to carefully analyze clues and think things through pretty well when he has time. The downside is, that when he DOESN'T have time to plan things out to his liking, he has a lot more difficulty coming up with stuff on the fly (though he can still do it with A LOT of effort)


and 2. Though certainly able to keep calm, cool and collected most of the time, he has a definite sore spot when it comes to criminals specifically threatening his family and friends. In fact, that could be considered his "berserk button".

I hope this DOES help. If not, I apologize for wasting your time.

Thanks! I like those suggestions. They're very fitting for him, especially taking his previous career as a police officer into account.
