Courage the Cowardly Dog

30 March, 2016 | Posted in Sketches

Courage the Cowardly Dog is an american animated comedy horror television series created by John R. Dilworth for Cartoon Network. It follows an anthropomorphic beagle who lives with a married elderly couple in the middle of Nowhere. The trio are frequently thrown into bizarre misadventures, often involving the paranormal/supernatural.

Courage is an easily frightened lavender beagle dog and was abandoned as a puppy after his parents were forcibly sent into outer space. He lives in a ranch house near the fictional town of Nowhere, Kansas with Muriel Bagge, a sweet-natured Scottish woman, and her husband Eustace, a grouchy, selfish, greedy man who constantly harasses Courage. The trio frequently run into monsters, aliens, demons, mad scientists, zombies and other supernatural perils from myths and legends that Courage must fend off to save his owners, unbeknownst to them.

The plot generally uses horror conventions, common to horror films. Ironically, given his name, Courage is a genuine coward, but still goes to great lengths to protect his owners.

I used gel pen to lay down the outlines and to ink this sketch.
