Name of Iralbe by Viergacht Name of Iralbe by Viergacht
A portrait of one of the chracters from Wolfpearl's terrific long-running comic "Wurr".

Yes, those are eyeballs on the tongue - Iralbe is one of a pack of mutant "hellhounds", and is probably one of the least odd-looking of the bunch.

I particularly like this character because my sis and I used to have a dog with no eyes (anopthalmia) so that makes me go, "Awwwwww!". Let me tell you, that dog, Bonnie, may have been blind but she was very accomplished, competing in cart-pulling and rally training as well as being a therapy dog and just all-around sweet and awesome.

Character belongs to Wolfpearl! Read "Wurr" here: wolfpearl.deviantart.com/
This is just fan art.

Nice job on everything: the anatomy, details, colors . . . the fur! 
I just did a bunch of animal illustrations, the fur took forever.

LOL It really does! You just sort of have to go into a trance painting fur.

The anopthalmia stricken Bonnie story is heartwarming. This character, though, is incredibly unsettling.

I love the deep unease I feel with this, partly because at first glance it looks like a perfectly content canine, but on further inspection the familiar turns into a twisted visage of incomprehensible features. That's my favourite kind of horror.

It is mind-blowingly freaky at first, but it's amazing as you read the comic how quickly you get used to it.

It's so interesting to see Iralbe portrayed in such a believable manner! You pulled the character off in a way that it seems so approachable and pet-like! I guess that's a bit of your fond memories of your lovely pooch coming in.

You're exactly right, of course, I can't help but be fond of Iralbe. My wonderful, crazy sister now runs a rescue for handicapped pets named after Bonnie :)

That's amazing! Ironically enough my own sister's been working on getting in to animal care so I know how much effort it takes to do something like that. Bless her!

I'd advise anybody not to look up 'anopthalmia' on Google Images.

I didn't know that could happen with dogs. Neat.. musta been a sweaty pie. I had some fish without eyes... and they were real cool.. actually liked being petted.

Also I LOVE Wurr I have been watching it for a while <3 I like crippled and Hafmir (sp?)
