Nina Smith, my Giant Schnauzer character. I made her many, many months ago but never got done a proper drawing of her until now.
She's a two-star U.S. Army General in her late 40's. Divorced with no kids and she's happy with that. Unlike other women of her breed she doesn't care about shortening the fur on her muzzle, so she's nearly always mistaken as a man. It never offends her though, she likes it in a way. Her appearance reduces the chance of being prejudged like a woman might be in the military.
She's a very kind and caring woman, but she's not very pleasant to be around when she's angry(which is fortunately rare). She's got a stocky built body and mostly lives off of coffee.
Also, she's kicked Lecter in the balls. How can you not like her, knowing that?
