Westwind Gets a Puppy by Falcolf Westwind Gets a Puppy by Falcolf
...actually, Westwind doesn't remember - which is exactly what Northwind is banking on - Westwind has amnesia. She also usually isn't like this (yelling at Northy) she's usually really sweet. But y'know, it's that time of year and her brain still wants babies even if she can't remember what happened last week. (She also apparently can't remember that her species' babies don't look like that.)

Context:


I've simplified their designs a lot this year but I've kept their colours. I'm glad to finally continue this crazy February tradition again of Northwind attempting to maintain his abstinence (on pain of having his maleness ripped out by an angry immortal bird-like thing if he fails.)

Also, in case you guys don't get the punchline - that puppy is a dog. Northwind and Westwind are sentient (as smart as human or smarter) quadrupedal predatory animals (I personally call humans animals) from my fictional planet that my series is on, Rim-err. (Or just Rimer.) They have different dentation (teeth) than dogs, different bone structure, different biochemistry (since they have a different planetary origin) and they are thus completely unrelated to dogs. (And they can NOT interbreed with dogs.) Though they are called 'glacier wolves' this name came from a bad translation based on their resemblance to the Gaian canines by another immortal. These guys are very different from dogs - they could learn to read if they wanted/needed to (most of them really don't) and they can communicate vocally with humans. (Though they can't physically speak English.) Based on this, I'm probably not going to be calling baby Falla puppies any more - the puppy in the title here refers completely to the baby dog.

Their anatomy is kind of snow leopard x wolf.

Northwind and Westwind are immortals. (So Northwind has to deal with this EVERY year! FOR EONS! Poor guy!)

The dog is unnamed; he's an Escavian Draft Dog, which you can learn more about here!


And for fun, here's the second digital piece that I ever did, featuring these two!


It was fun drawing a comic again!

Hahaha yeah, he's safe for another few years providing the dog stays alive and Westwind doesn't realize what it is! (Or maybe she will and will just be happy to have a pet. :heart:)
