Brilliant! Looks like a cross between Virizion & Ninetales:)

I have to say, this is one of the better mix & match animals I've seen. Actually feels like a legitimate mythological creature & yet is still very imaginative & fun.

And as always, your colours are just to die for. What do you use, if you don't mind me asking?

I hop this is a good enough critique for you, I really don't normally do these:>

Thanks, design is originally Pluww's, I forgot to link it to description but I just made my version of the character. I agree, it's really cool mix of animals. There actually is peacock dog in Persian mythology called Angha/Simurgh [link] though the one I painted doesn't have wings.

For painting, I used Talens designer's gouache. I've only made couple of pieces with it (this and Marceline), earlier I've used watercolors and non-brand gouache mixed together.

Awesome! I'll have to see if I can use Gouache when I'm drawing pictures.

Thanks for the link to the Wikipedia article on the Simurgh! Apparently, it was unambiguously female, sometimes had the head of a woman & was big enough to carry of elephants or even Whales! That sounds like one awesome dog to me.:)

Who's Pluww?

Crayoncrunch is sort of monthly secret santa at tumblr, and pluww was the person to whom I was randomly assigned to draw picture for. Here's the character reference from her blog: [link]
