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. :)
