E:hlal by Asanbonsam E:hlal by Asanbonsam
A picture of mine of an E:hlal dogshifter. These beings are basically a new version of the Mearans from the Changing Breeds book of the nWoD game line from White Wolf.
The original concept of these weredogs was heavily based on the stereotypical moronic loyalty, lacked depth and was obsessed with breeds, despite the fact that some of them would make these shifters cripples.
So I changed the whole concept. The current name is not just the one of a dog in greek mythology (Meara) but based on a word from a native American language and means what cannot be commanded. They are much more independent and dangerous and I skipped breed and went after type. For that I searched for traits that could survive under natural selection. The muzzle, legs and tail of this one is from a dingo from the Blue mountains, the spotted arms from a wild dog in Namadgee and the forehead from a dingo in the Simpson desert.

And before I forget: this pose is from a book from the game line Werewolf the Forsaken.

Thanks, but I do wonder. I had the markings on the head to make it look like a dog, but apparently people mostly seem to think its not one. How did the whole being look to you?

You did make it look like a dog a little but I think that werewolves are made to look a little like dogs even if it's as low as 1% lol but the whole thing just looks awesome to me :)

Well maybe for you and those others dogs are wolves. It just seems that people usually forget that and so I don't really expect it anymore. :/

But according to current state of knowledge not enough to make them two different species. Of course the question is what sort of dogs and gray wolves, but for pictures like this I don't use show dogs anyway, so there will never be anything like a were Cavalier Kings Spaniel or anything. Lucky for them, I mean who wants a character that has nerve damage or heart murmur
