Cryin Hound is a champion wrestler from the Intergalactic Wrestling Federation who fought by himself against all four Ninja Turtles in the first comic book series. He very nearly won even against four skilled opponents, tossing the teenage turtles around like lightweights. The character concept was really great, but I decided against trying to replicate his very cartoonish face, instead opting for a style closer to the new IDK styling to go with other works in progress. A bulldog look seemed to match the closest to his cartoon look, used a head from a large articulated dog person series from a few years back.

Cryin Hound also has his entourage: manager in pink suit, Bitin' Betsy; bodyguard in black suit, Snarling Steve; bodyguard in white suit, Growling Gus. Snarling Steve has a sawed off double barrel, Growling Gus has a cannon arm with replaceable hand. They work hard to keep the adoring masses from mobbing the champ.

Cut apart two Maestro Hulks for this one, shortened at waist, stacked up, Aves Apoxie for the sculpt on his singlet. Dremeled on the knee and elbow joints, and at hips to cut down paint rub, sanded some spots as well. My daughter painted this one herself all the way through, dark brown wash over everything for detail and to make his singlet look dirty and worn, drybrush over the high points for detail and shading. Impressive for a 12 year old for sure.

After the events of the turtle comic, Cryin Hound has had many adventures as both a space pirate(lost his eye), glamour model, and he eventually became the IWF champion after defeating Ace Duck.

Hope you like Cryin Hound and his entourage.

Awesome job DrChops! had a feeling this one was yours. Really love the sculptwork. Tell your daughter she did an awesome job on the paints! Keep up the great teamwork!

Haha - yea I am probably pretty obvious so far, my style is a bit weird and silly, thanks for liking my sculpt, starting to get the feel for Apoxie after running thru four pounds of it for "practice". Pretty proud of my daughter, she already draws at a high level, better than me, and she really got into painting for the contest as well. Thanks!

Thanks everyone for the votes and comments! I was not able to complete my intended, more formal entry idea in time, but with my daughter's help Cryin' Hound sort of came to life. Really fun to make and fun to play with, she painted the whole thing herself after reading the painting tutorials here on the Realm Buying a real light tent and tripod this week so soon my pics will be better

Awesome! I thought I was the only one that liked this character I have a custom of him in the vintage style that's been sitting on the bench waiting to be finished for a long time now. Great work
