Basset Hound toon character
An example of Basset Hound toon character I made representing a grandpa dog. The basset hound is often featured in films, advertisments and cartoons. In fact, more than one of Walt Disneys cartoon characters are modelled on a Basset Hound, such as Lafayette from “The Aristocats” or Toby from “The Great Mouse Detective”.
The Basset Hound is a short-legged breed of dog in the hound family with an incredible sense of smell. The name Basset is derived from the French word bas, meaning ‘low’, with the attenuating suffix “et” together meaning ‘rather low’.
