There were new topics with sketches and sprites for all of these, actually. Not sure about Eelhounds, but i do know Little Art Girl is working on the Unagi xD

I could give spriting the Eelhound a try, if you'd like. This is another one of those "single-appearance" creatures that I'm just ridiculously fond of. It reminds me of a wyrsa.

I'm sure there's no reason why multiple people can't put the effort in, if they want to. As long as no one's feelings get hurt if they don't ultimately get picked. We want to encourage anyone who can sprite for the site to do so, after all. :)

Okay, this is what I've got so far--I couldn't find any screenshots with a full tail, so I've got two options there. The sprites are identical except for the tail. I've done a little shading, and since the eelhound is, well, eel-like, I figured my semi-smooth shading might actually look appropriate on this. Granted, I just barely started on the shading, so it's definitely going to be worked on more.
---BUT I'd like an opinion on which tail position to use. I think the bottom one is more appropriate for the species and am leaning towards it, but I like the curled one enough to seek a second opinion.

I'm partial to the first one, because it makes the eel hound seem more flexible. I assume that with 'eel' being part of the animal, it would have a long, flexible body. The first tail seems to mirror that more, since the second one has a bit of a stiff feel to it. Like a T-rex tail, or a velociraptor tail. Something used to counter-balance the weight of the body.

But at the same time, the curled position doesn't feel right in that pose. :/ I don't know what kind of position I'm thinking of for the tail, but I get an image of the tail curving down from the body, then looping around to the back. Something... elegant maybe? Or serpentine? I don't know. Feel free to ignore this bit.

they both look nice. And I'm glad someone suggested a Shirshu. I looked the one June had and forgot about them.
