Canine abominations introduced in Namco's 1993 Sega Genesis/Megadrive Splatterhouse 3 video game. They are one of the new monster species that the protagonist, Rick, will have to deal with as he races to save his wife, Jennifer, and son, David, from the clutches of the Evil One.

A Hell Hound can inflict considerable damage with its bite, but the beast also has two deadlier attack options at its disposal: First, it can vomit up volumes of acidic bile; this foul-smelling, green fluid dissolves soft tissue on contact. Second, the intestine-like structure mounted underneath a Hell Hound's body houses a long, retractable, barbed appendage. The creature can extend this concealed organ a considerable distance, without warning, impaling its prey upon the tip. Despite their mass, Hell Hounds are exceptional leapers; their four powerful legs allow them to jump the entire length of a game screen, or more, with ease. Like most of the monsters in Splatterhouse 3, the Hell Hound sprite gets recycled into an assortment of color variants (I've observed tan, red, and black). Generally speaking, the darker the hue, the tougher the creature version is (I.e., a black Hell Hound can take, and dish out, more punishment than the other two color types). When killed, these demonic dogs often leave behind a heart (restores some of Rick's health) or an eldritch orb (replenishes a portion of Rick's transformation energy); on rare occasions--usually during a "Stage X" bonus level--you might also get an ancient book (grants Rick an extra life).

Thanks for the accolades!
There are no tricks/shortcuts, if you wish to make toys from scratch then you must become proficient at sculpting. Teaching someone to sculpt is beyond the scope of a simple tutorial in my opinion. It's taken me years of practice/experience to get to my current level of ability--you have to be willing to put in that kind of time/dedication if you want to succeed at it. Sculpting in paper differs from clay in many respects, true, but the basic principles are much the same.
