Character Design - Big Red (temp name)

It figures. I tell myself I'm going to draw something for myself because I've been doing nothing but working on commissions for 2 straight weeks, and I still end up doing something for someone else. Ah well, it's for a good cause:

DOG-IFYING MY BOYFRIEND! It's an obsession. I have to dogify everyone. He requested a dog character and I figured I'd do a little doodling tonight to try to design one for him.

We...and by we I mean skorzy myself and siegewolf, earlier decided that he would be some kind of hunting/sporting breed. I then decided he couldn't be anything other than a stupid knuckly bird dog. With freckles.

SOOOOO Vannie and I started the online search for gangly bird dogs that have freckles. "This breed has this feature I want but not this one! And THIS one has that other feature I want, but not the others!"
Vannie: "MUTT TIME!"
Me: *squee!*

And so, here's my thought process of trying to cross a German Wirehaired Pointer and a Brittany Spaniel. Sorry it's messy. My thoughts usually are.

Still not final of course, the beef has to approve it, change it, and name it (and probably will hem and haw now that I've called it stupid..and knuckly..and gangly) but really, he's a red freckled bird dog with a moustache. COME ON!
