Conceptual sketch of Himalayan Fu Dog which I designed for specific project where it will have his own story background. I might change something on him before full illustration will be made.
He is guardian of holy mountains of Nepal- अन्नपूर्णा (Annapurna). Annapurna means "Goddess of the Harvests" and the elevation is eight thousand metres (25.000~ feet) which makes me a "wow" because I lived on 10.000 feet (4000m) elevation and already I had healthwise sucky time!
For some reason Mount Everest never fascinated me a lot, really because just of the hype "of the tallest peak on the earth and famous alpinists" but that's better and that makes other mountains less known yet more interesting because they are sacred and hold so many legends. Some mountains in Nepal are forbidden to enter.
And in general I'm heavely inspired by Nepal creations and I never thought travels would be the best inspiration source
