whipplosion by shelzie whipplosion by shelzie
another variation on the 'headshots of the same breed' theme I did here; of course I couldn't resist my favourite breed as the subject! :D and I did want a chance to include =therevolutionbegins's Mask and ~Taintedkitten's Celeste since I hadn't drawn them in my previous dA whippet tribute and I love seeing new whippet characters anyhow and these two had lovely markings and colours. This picture started with those two and Swift, and basically exploded (hence the title). again, I guess it was also an experiment with trying to show variation in character design within a particular breed, which I've actually been playing around with for a while already but never to this extent.

(I had to include Azzy and Rose even though ~Cerzz and ~Nulde haven't been seen here in months because I miss them. D': )

anyway. featured, anti-clockwise from top middle:

Rose © ~Nulde
Encore © ~scbordercollie01
Flying Whippet © ~Queen-of-Greyhounds
Beezle © ~FireflyStudios
Asp is mine.
Mask © =therevolutionbegins
Aztecca © ~Cerzz
Celeste © ~Taintedkitten
Blaire © =losdoberman
..and Swift is mine of course!

So sweet! :heart: BTW, do you have a saluki char, or just the whippet? And do you have char sheets uploaded of either? I couldn't seem to find one in your gallery, but only of salukis and whippets you've done for others.

I have in total six - and counting - whippet characters including Swift, and I actually don't have any Saluki characters. o.O perhaps I should create one. :)

That is one great conglomeration of cute whippetage! Why, i think there is so much whippetage in there that the earth itself will take on the shape of a whippet and humans will grow needlenoses! I like the multitude of unique expressions you gave them, especially the yellow one, she/he looks humorous. :)

Whippets are lovely, I have a greyhound myself, mainly down to the love of large dogs and their beautiful bone structure. I have never met a whippet that wasn't a ball of love <3 And I love your pictures, they are fantastic

:heart: thank you so very much, it's comments like yours that make me happy inside. :) I have an Italian Greyhound of my own (and yes I prefer smaller dogs) but I hope to have both IGs and whippets someday! the sighthounds in general are such beautiful dogs. :)

practice makes perfect!

maybe I could draw a GSD and you could draw a sighthound and we can exchange redlines. since I bellyroll-submit to your anatomical knowledge of GSDs. o.o

:icondeutschschaferhund:
deutschschaferhund Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2007
psh, my knowledge of GSD's is nicht compared to your knowledge of whippets! xD
I saw one the other day, too. it was a brindle one... so pretty! I LOVE brindle on sighthounds (when we almost adopted a greyhound, the one we were going to adopt was a dark brindle named Cha-cha)

that does seem like a good idea, though! :D
redlining is always fun (and helps!)

xD I can't pick on the conformation standard nitty-gritty like you! but then again whippets haven't really suffered - as far as I know - from the breeding problems that GSDs apparently have, or at least not to the same degree.

squee yes we should do it then. I'll get mine up... eventually. o.x;
