CC: Bruno and Kia EDIT by SuburbanExperiment CC: Bruno and Kia EDIT by SuburbanExperiment
EDIT; Finished fix

Name: Bruno
Breed Base: Great Dane/German Shepherd
Age: 5 1/2
Gender: Male
Abilities: N/A
Strengths: Muscular build, very strong jaws, and high endurance level.
Weaknesses: Bit more Lumbersome that most dogs, can't turn fast, and weaker hind legs.
Personality: Bruno is a calm and peaceful dog most of the time, not one to make much fuss over the little things. When he gets the chance he's rather quite lazy, but has determination when it counts. Not being much of a talker usually, he comes off a bit dimwitted and flat beside Kia.
History: Bruno was born in the same pack as Kia within the Zone. Since he was old enough to hunt he has been used as pack mule, mostly for the littler mix. He has became a skilled hunter over time, and usually bring in the meat for the two. After they left their pack for a life of their own, they've never split from each other. Bruno lets the little dog do most of the talking, giving him a feeling of control, but the great dane is the one really in charge. He makes the big decisions, and Kia knows it. He is kind to him though, gathering food and basically being the dogs life-long babysitter.
Likes: Warm grassy meadows, observing nature and animals, the satisfyingly feel of his fangs sinking into flesh. Is resilient with pups
Dislikes: Being messed with while he's relaxing, dogs taking whats his without permission, being told what to do by a dog he knows he dominates.
Other: Wears a chain-link collar which belonged to his father.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name: Kia
Breed Base: Labrador Retriever/Akita
Age: 5 1/2
Gender: Male
Abilities: N/A
Strengths: High endurance, speed, and fast counterattacks
Weaknesses: Below average strength, below average pain tolerance, sensitive to light and loud noises.
Personality: Kia's a jabberjaw, never knows when to shut up. He feels in control of most situations, especially with lady dogs. His confidence and mouth get him into trouble a lot and tries his hardest to hold his own.
History: Born in the same pack as Bruno within the Zone. His mother died during his birth and now feels a need for women from the lack of mothership in his life. He and his father werent on the best of terms, especially from his lack of strength. He felt it a disgrace, and wondered how he held his own with the other pups. He did hold very well, but Bruno was still the child he woudve liked to had. He now secretly aspires to be like the Great Dane, and feels accomplished by having him hunt for them and do his bidding.
Likes: Bitches, food, talking, and feeling dominant.
Dislikes: Being forced into subordination, dogs picking on the weak, boredom
Other: N/A

Alright, here's our review

First, we're a little confused; which is which? Could you label them please? You say Bruno has a chain-link collar but neither of them is wearing one in the image, could you fix this? And we'd like for the ref not to hide their paws, your opponents will want to know what color they are.

That said, Bruno seems balanced, but we're a little confused about two of his strengths. What does "can take a hit" mean? Does this mean he has high pain tolerance? If so that's what you should say. If not could you clarify it? And by "lean build, yet quite muscular" what did you mean? That he's strong for his size? Remember, you need to be very specific.

The same is true for Kia, we aren't sure what "lean muscles" means in terms of his strengths. Furthermore, "average pain tolerance" isn't a weakness, that's normal. A weakness should be a trait that is below average, so he will need an additional weakness to balance out.

Of course I can. I know he's not wearing a collar in this picture, because I was drawing this picture before I thought about joining CC. Ill go back and add that too, to make it easier. Paws too =]

Haha yeah sorry, I got to the writing at like 2 at night. Terrible I know, but i'll specify his endurance and his build and all.

Lean muscles; I'd hate to bring up the word 'wolf' but they're a perfect example of this build. Lean stringy muscles that have much endurance and power despite they're appearance. I may redo Kia because he's too big for the picture anyways, when Bruno is supposes to be this towering great dane.

I'll be sure to fix this, I dont know what I was thinking on some of these. When it comes to my roleplays I'm actually very literate. I must've been quite tired last night. THank you for you feedback too ^^

Alright, just to warn you, I would avoid making Kia's build too wolflike. We have rules about that. Right now he looks fine, but since you're redrawing the ref I wanted to make sure you were aware of that.

Now, two of Kia's strengths aren't really applicable in a fight. All dogs have soft pawpads, and "small" is relative. He may be small compared to Bruno, but he is certainly not small compared to, say, Untoten or Tangerine (who are a brussel's griffon and corgi respectively). You'll want to rethink these weaknesses.

Finally, you mention fixing the shading on the description, but actually for a ref it's better not to shade at all. This makes it easier to tell what is a marking and what isn't, and how to color-pick. You can shade if you really want to, obviously, there's no rule against it, but it's easier for the other competitors if you don't.

Oh no, he's not a wolf at all, its was just an example for what his build is like. I read the rules. I was ify on their mixes. Bruno's a Great Dane/German Shepherd Mix, but his build is definatly of the Great Dane breed. The German Shepherd just shows a bit in his coat. Then Kia's a Akita/Labrador Retriever Mix, and his mix is rather mutual. He has the curly tail of the Akita, but its less curve in it.

Alright, I'll see what I can poke at with Kia, maybe modify my veiw of him a bit. I want the more 'main' character of the two in this is Bruno anyways. Focus on him more I suppose would be a better way of putting it. I'll see what i can do with him. =]

No shading? I can do that. =] Less work for me.
