Heads of Hellhounds by zero0810 Heads of Hellhounds by zero0810
Here's some mature OCs! For left to right, we have Waheela Laelaps, Garm Amarok and Sirius Mirzam
Surely I have a lot of OCs... but I have to fill my universe, right?
They're the generals of the military force known as Hellhound (that I can describe as the equivalent of our army). They in particular have at their command the elite of the army, the Hellhound Death Squad, formed by 12 hellhounds (soldiers) of which I have invented only one OC, meaning that I have still 11 characters to do for this... I'm so masochist, or too ambitious, or maybe both?
I'll explain the thing, but not here. I will make a faction reference sheet soon...er or later. 

I'd like to explain the names I choose for them. Given the name of the army, I'll gave them mythological/astrological canine-related names because I'm lazy

Note that I gained infos from the web (mainly Wikipedia), and that can be inaccurate.

The Waheela is the name of a gigantic wolf-like beast that has inhabited Indian legends from this area for a very long time. It is described as being like a wolf, but much larger and with a heavier build. It is attributed with supernatural powers, and it is said to be responsible for the many mysterious deaths that have occurred in Nahanni Valley, also known as "Headless Valley" because the people who died here mysteriously all had missing heads. (source)

Laelaps was a female Greek mythological dog who never failed to catch what she was hunting. (source)

In Norse mythologyGarmr or Garm is a dog associated with Ragnarök, and described as a blood-stained watchdog that guards Hel's gate. (source)

Amarok  is a car (or Amaroq) is the name of a gigantic wolf in Inuit mythology. It is said to hunt down and devour anyone foolish enough to hunt alone at night. (source)

Lastly, Sirius and Mirzam (or Murzim, or Al-Murzim, "The Herald") are two stars of the constellation Canis Major. Being in the Harry Potter fandom, it makes me a little uncomfortable to use the name Sirius for an OC, though...

If you have read until here, CONGRATS! xD

About the drawing, I had fun with lights... during the first portrait. You can easily detect where I got tired and just wanted to finish them xD I love how Waheela came out (it's the first time I draw her, she was only in my head until now): I hope she looks badass as I see her <3 I haven't gave them a precise age: Sirius is between 35 and 40, Waheela is between 40 and 45, then Garm... I don't know, really. xD Like... 50+? More? He came out quite ugly in this drawing, poor him xD

Thank you! :D
I struggled a lot with them - did the lineart, didn't like it, was about to send everything to Hell, then gave up and colored directly the sketches (that's why they look so rushed, I guess).

Idee? Volevi dire "caos informe che imperversa incontrollabile e devastante nella mia testa e che non riuscirei a mettere su carta neanche se ne andasse della mia stessa vita", piuttosto? xD
