Your internal shot here is pretty freakin' impressive. Also, I think it's interesting to think of a humanoid with doglike instincts, creating the drooling, playful pred you've pictured above. Great job, procrastination aside! xD
I just came back here tonight because I've been going through a lot with Akira lately. I use him a lot for roleplays, especially with Night. Being an adult now, Aki's been changing a lot and going through some hard and stressful times. I get really close to my chracters and my closest ones are like my children, or even extensions of myself. I feel everything Aki feels and, well, lately he's been going through a lot, with owning his house and having a job and having to care for his two housemates... Heheh... Well, one housemate now. That's another thing; he just lost a very close friend. I guess I feel bad for him, and I'm blushing at how stupid I must sound to care this much about someone I made up. But maybe you understand, having Ephi.
Anyway, I'm browsing over all my pictures, plus your lovely picture, of Akira, just loving him like a mother would love her son. Thanks again a million times for drawing this.
Oh-- Also, I plan to do another pic of Ephi sometime soon, having my tablet now. You deserve one much better than the track pad-drawn one I gave you. You've done a lot for me lately. And happy new year!
