Tater Dog

So this post is definitely something different from the teddy bears and cool-looking characters that I usually post on my blog.

This time I revisited an old drawing from my college days, and here's a quick story....

I had an interesting chat with a couple of friends of mine once while visiting the school library. One of us said the word "tater dog", we all looked at each and started laughing. We didn't know what the hell a "tater dog" was, so we all took turns making jokes on what a tater dog would be (sorry but my old brain cant remember those jokes)

Anyways later that night I had an idea to make a sketch of what I thought a tater dog was, and I was thinking some sort of ugly creature that roams the country killing animals, much like what a chupacabra is to Mexicans.

So I did a drawing of a man and his boy (both with thick country accents) discovering a Tater Dog....and here's the result.....

Pretty crazy huh? I know. Well I came across it recently and couldn't help myself but scan it in and do an updated version....and here it is! Hope you like it....

So this is an old portfolio piece I did way back in 09', it was a bad attempt to try to do a Frazetta-esque werewolf illustration. The idea was to have a composition centered around a majestic werewolf with his minions surrounding him. In other words a bad-ass fantasy piece. I liked the concept but execution was so and so. I to take another crack at it.

This is the second attempt....and worse unfortunately. I tried to do rework the whole thing to make it more appealing but it ended blowing up in my face, thats what happens when you try to detail too early without finishing the this time I decided to do everything in photoshop.
I feel this one is better than the rest, although its no Frazetta...its an improvement :) Hope you like it!
