Most of us see our pets are funny, cuddly, adorable, and loyal. However, one artist decided to reimagine our favorite canines as battle dogs in full armor and appropriate weapons. Needless to say, the results are nothing less than amazing.
Nikita Orlov is a 31-year-old artist with an obvious love for animals. Moreover, his awesome illustrations of battle dogs display different breeds as guards, warriors, knights, warlocks, and barbarians. However, there are also merchants, innkeepers, bards, and even a monk. Additionally, there is an adorable bard that uses the perfect breed.
This artist created ‘canitaurs’, a set of awesome battle dogs.
Orlov revealed how he started creating the adorable illustrations.
“I saw a dog one day and I thought, ‘Hmm… it would be fun to make a centaur from a dog. I bet someone did it already!’. I googled and found none. Surprise! So I decided to do a couple of battledoges. I thought of a fantasy world where those doges could exist and what professions they might have. Soon I ended up with a whole pack.”
The artist immediately posted his artworks on Instagram where they became an instant hit. Interestingly, all the attention landed Orlov an awesome new gig. This is a great opportunity that will eventually win him new fans.
Each illustration chooses a specific breed for certain medieval professions.
Not surprisingly, Orlov also shared that his battle dogs will become a major part of a new Dungeons & Dragons project.
“Things got rolling and now I`m collaborating with amazing guys from Punga Miniatures and soon in October, we will launch a Kickstarter for D&D ‘The Deck of Many’ project by Cardamajigs. Also, there is an idea for a tabletop game.”
This is certainly great news for people who love dogs and D&D. The artist also imparted an amazing advice for anyone who wants to realize a new idea. “If you are inspired to do something unique, just do it and share it with the world,” Orlov wrote. Additionally, you can follow him on Instagram @bloodynik_art to see his awesome artworks.
