Dead Dog Wonderland by chalicothere
Dead Dog Wonderland
Because I got into Deadman Wonderland recently, I just had to create my canine versions of the two leads.  Ganta is a Chihuahua, and Shiro is a wolf, making them quite the odd couple.  I'm not sure if these guys are based on Alice in Wonderland characters or not, but they definitely remind me of the King and Queen of Hearts.

These characters are copyrights of their respective Series and this was drawn purely for fun.

Spino head study
This is a Spinosaurus pencil drawing I made based on my blender model of the same character.  I had wanted to do some extra drawings of this fascinating prehistoric creature.
Realistic Pokemon Canids by chalicothere
Realistic Pokemon Canids
I was inspired by the absolutely gorgeous art created by to draw some realistic pokemon of my own.  Keep in mind that even though I have some Felids and other creatures sketched out, these will likely be the only ones I'll ever post.  Also, there is no way I can create all the Pokémon canids as I don't have the time or energy, so I stuck with a select few favorites. These are purely drawn for fun.


Despite the name, I based this one on a cross between a Maned Wolf and a Cape Hunting Dog.  I imagined this creature is sort of an evolutionary missing link between the fire canids like Arcanine and the phychic ones like Alakazam.  He's probably much rarer than his descendants and is more of a generalized fighter while the others are more specialized.


I'm hoping it's obvious what I based him on.  I think of the Eevees as most like our domesticated dogs the way they change appearance based on their surroundings.   

Espeon and Umbreon

These guys evolved closest to human contact which is why I think they'd behave the most like guard dogs out of all the Eevees.  Espeon is based on a very feline-like Ibizan Hound-type of dog.  Umbreon is much more Rottweiler-based in terms of appearance and attitude.  I imagine Espeon is both independent and protective and Umbreon has only two emotions...stoic and aggressive.

Houndour and Houndoom

I wanted to try something a little different with them.  They're not canines at all but instead are carnivorous undulates related to antelope, cattle, and the prehistoric mammal andrewsarchus.  This is how they're able to grow horns as real dogs cannot.  Their appearances and powers evolved to make them off-putting to the psychic predators that hunted their ancestors in large numbers.  They got the name "hound" because they look vaguely dog-like, are very easy to train, and bond strongly to their owners.

Abra, Kadabra, and Alakazam

I based these guys most directly on wolves although they definitely have some Shepherd and Chalicotherium in them as well.  I imagine they have a very complex ranking order within their packs.  Abras act as the omegas (and are often very skittish because they want to avoid fights with the larger pack members.  They need 18 hours of sleep a day, but often do it with one eye open) Kadabras are more aggressive and soldier-like, and the Alakazams act as the alpha male and female who rule over everything.  Alakazams do in fact exist in the wild, but because they are so intelligent and domineering, no trainer is ever going to catch them.  They have to be raised from Kadabras, who bond more readily to humans.  I imagine Alakazams behave like a cross between a chimpanzee and a Belgian Mallinois.  Extremely intelligent, but without a proper outlet for their energy, they can also be extremely crazy and destructive.

These characters are copyrights of the Pokémon games.
Giant Sea Horse by chalicothere
Giant Sea Horse
I decided to create a cartoon for the Fantasia Lyrics Challenge.  The song I chose was "Let It Go" from Frozen and the lyrics that inspired me were as follows...

It's funny how some distance,
Makes everything seem small.

And the fears that once controlled me,
Can't get to me at all.

What's going on here is that there are two groups of animals in an aquarium, a seahorse and the big guys such as sharks and barracudas.  Naturally, they are separated in two different tanks and because the seahorse is some distance away, he's completely forgotten his natural fear of them.  You could view this story in different ways but personally, I see it as a cautionary tale.  If these groups of animals were to meet, the seahorse would get the shock of his life.

I was recently tagged by :iconsetokibas-kitten: and really liked her questions so I decided to answer them.  Don’t worry about being tagged by me as I am very lenient about that kind of thing.  Only answer my questions if you want to.

1. Post the rules! (it helps)
2. Share 10 things about yourself! (I want to know more about you!)
3. Answer and make up 10 questions you have to tag and answer!
4. Choose 10 people and put their icons in your post!
5. Go to their pages and tell them that they were TAGGED!
6. Not something silly like "You are tagged you read this"!
7. You have to ACTUALLY tag 10 people!
8. No tag backs! (I don't want to write this again)
9. Don't say 'no tags' (That ruins the fun…)
10. Everyone that is tagged has to post a journal similar to this!


10 things about me

  1. I recently recovered from a badly broken leg.  It was a tib/fib fracture and took all spring to heal.

  2. I can now do everything I could do before breaking my leg and couldn’t be happier about it!

  3. I trained my cat to sit, give me five, and follow me. 

  4. I tried cosplaying for the very first time recently.  It was a lot of fun.

  5. I have an illustration I did for an E-book coming out soon.

  6. I’ve been getting back into non-digital painting but may or may not do anything DA worthy.

  7. I was given Animal Crossing New Leaf as something to do as I recovered and ended up liking it a lot.

  8. I used to be scared of heights, but got over it thanks to being on a ski lift.

  9. Aside from that, I really disliked skiing.

  10.  I love underwater activities like snorkeling and would love to scuba dive someday.



1.What Exotic Animal would you have as a pet if you could?

I want a Doberman more than anything, but they’re not very exotic.  Perhaps I’d choose a seahorse or small spotted gar if they’re easy to care for.

2. What is your favorite Sport/Outdoor activity?

Swimming and hiking.

3. What is your favorite Cartoon/Anime from your childhood?

4. What is your favorite Music genre?

Rock, although I’m not too picky about this.

5. If you could meet ANY of your favorite Fictional Characters, who would it be and why?

Right now, I’d definitely choose As Nodt from Bleach, no contest!  He’s just really cool in every way and I think we’d get along well.

6. Which Video game Series do you prefer? LOZ or Pokemon?

Pokemon for sure!

7. What is your favorite Animated or Studio Ghibli Film?

My favorite Studio Ghibli film is Princess Mononoke.  It would be way too hard to pick a favorite overall.

8. If you found a Genie, what three wishes would you choose?

1, a good, steady art-related job.  2, an opportunity to move. 3, see question #1.

9. if you could become an Animagus (either Normal or magical Animal) what would you be?

A werecat or weredobie.

10. What is your favorite International food?



My 10 questions

  1.  If you could get really good at one artistic medium of your choice, what would it be?

  2. If you saw a real life dinosaur, what would your reaction be?  Would you be excited and want to study it, or run for your life!

  3. List your 4 favorite characters from one series.  How would they get along as roomies?

  4. I know I’ve asked this before but, cat person, dog person, both, or neither.

  5. …And what are your favorite breeds (if applicable)?

  6. Do you prefer CG or claymation?

  7. Animation or live action?

  8. What is your biggest artistic muse at the moment?
