Here is my caption: "Werewolf society has existed along human society for millenia and while often living in small packs to keep from being detected by humans, werewolves have an intricate internal society complete with politics, laws, and leadership hierarchy that extends past the individual packs. While werewolf cities as known by humans are rare, they are not unheard of. These cities do not function as human cities however and are often inhabited by only one or two small ancient werewolf families whom organize regional multi-pack events held on consecrated ground. Many of these cities are ruins well concealed from humans through elaborate diversions staged by hybrids and even humans who have come to live at peace with their werewolf neighbors for several generation"

I took a trip to place in Sarasota and it was a blast. Visited Siesta beach and eat at a Hibachi (my first time, and it was so cool!) We doodled and talked about OCs and headworld things. I'm definitely going to be visiting again when I can! I just got back yesterday morning (it's a 7hr drive one way), and I'm sunburnt and tired but it was awesome seeing them in person. Here's a little something I did while we had a mini art jam. c8
(getting back into commissions this week, lots of streaming in most cases! Thanks for being so patient everyone <3 )
So here's a newer breed of my newly created Species. This one is not a Flyer but more of a runner and can climb high rocky crevasses with help from its third set of appendages, tho these extra set of legs look like wings (more like they were wings that de-evolved) they are more for gripping onto un-steady ground or used for fighting off enemies. Evoktra and Solitary Grazillia.
thats pretty much all i can think of just now but if i have more interesting things to add in the morning i will.
Commissioned piece for Selruil from TEF community. Long over-dued one @_@ Wasn't easy combining a dog and a deer in the same body but I think I succeeded quite well with it after good while of trying (:
Here's a preview to my custom texture pack. All textures were created using my own photos and meshing/editing them in Photoshop. I may create more in the future if these have a good community response (other than that I kinda keep them for myself haha.)
-These are free to use for whatever you want; This includes commercial work and personal work. I only ask that you do not claim the original textures (as they are here.) Can be used outside DA on any website.
-Credit is NOT needed, you do not have to show me your work, and please do not note me if you do. When used and you want to put a link showing it, do so here on this comment section.
-Each texture is 2448x3264px or very close to this size.
Download for full resolution of each texture and have fun!
How I use most effect textures: create a layer above what you want to be affected. Set the layer mode to 'overlay.' Edit/reduce opacity if need be. Having a texture at 100% usually results in very contrasted results and may look too grungy. Remember to use a 'Clipping Mask' if you have a transparent image you want textured (there may be other ways to do this too.) Some artwork looks better without a texture-experimenting is the best route.
Remember I had adopted a few of these guys out a while back? Well I think it'd be neat to see other people design cool patterns on them! (no, not stars or anything too unnatural) Think stripes and elongated markings.
I was thinking about calling them Lirks/Lurks or something. Think of -lurking- creature. They're slinky, quiet, and make loud meow noises.
Ultimately I've come down to letting anyone make a 'Lurk' of their own. I don't have any size comparison chart atm but think of Jaguar size. They've got heavy paws, tough, thick necks, flexible/stable tail, and powerful back legs. The tails have thick barbs and a paddle like end. They can move through water quickly and use that tail as a rudder (think crocodile movements.)
The skin feels like micro fiber (very short and smooth!.) They've got a few feather tendrils trailing off the back of their heads with a bunch of feathery stringy fluff.
You can keep the 'Lurk' you make, but I would love to see them! I'll check in every now and then to see what you guys come up with.
I haven't had much spare time to draw due to work but when I heard that Capcom was doing a Darkstalkers Character Creation Contest I did my best to crank one out. Fun fact: I named her after my niece! You can find out more about the contest at: [link]
Some experimenting with modes, textures etc as a break at work. I wish i have more time for such things :U experimenting is fun yea, that's not my style but i like trying different things from time to time 8'D so don't feel disturbed plz
*Suesanne's character Aurelia (she's a centaur but it's not visible here because of close up XD )
"These past few months my mind has wandered to the darkest of places, concerned about what the future holds. But now those fears have been extinguished after I saw you for the first time.
Feeling your paws in mine for the first time fills my spirit with pride and joy. Emotions that I haven't felt in years and now I'm grateful to feel them again.
I hope I won't disappoint you and now as I hold you in my arms, I feel pride in knowing that you Dawn are my legacy."
Commission for Stormwolff, of his family trio of wolves! This one was so sweet to draw, I almost never get to paint baby animals. And such a wonderful idea too, thank you Stormwolff! The above short story was written by Storm just for this painting.
Two gnolls I made as an illustration, commissioned for the Adoran World-book (work in progress).
It took me ages... but I really like them!
The female hyena is a barbarian warrior, the male one is a wizard. It would be so great if there will be a game with a customizable fantasy hyena race...
At the height of Bloodmeet, gnoll war band camps stretch across the hills for miles in each direction. Each war band marks its camp with talismans of their conquests. One group might have the altar of a Calendral Tribe; another might have the skeleton of a giant. With the coming of the Orcan Wars, the latest status symbol might be a gate from some fortification of the Rolling Hills or a red orc supply wagon. The more daring the retrieval of the totems, and the more unlikely their presence here, the greater the status of the talisman. While a talisman is supposed to be a symbol of a war band’s prowess, merchants know the gnolls will pay dearly for artifacts from far and wide, and an underground market thrives for these talismans, known derisively as “a weakling’s honor”.
Edit: thank you so much for the DD! My first one <3
Another part of the set started in spring about Anthros with different professions. This time Wolves = Hunters c:
As you will probably notice it isn't quite finished. I grew tired of it to be honest, mostly since after 4 months without progress, I had done so many other paintings that it just didn't seem to match up anymore. But well, I'm still happy with the overall result! The poses and composition really worked out the way I wanted and the colors are good as well. Also, as always, practice is never bad, even if the painting gets scrapped in the end.
Haha, I hope the unfinished bits aren't disturbingly noticable at first glance xD
PS CS4, Wacom Intuos. [~10h] Started waaay back in March (Cookies to whoever spots the Skyrim reference ;D)
Ну и цветной вариант этого безобразия, что мне приснилось Х) Поскольку с цветом у меня все плохо, я решила все сделать в двух цветах - золото и бордо, хотя сон был уж очень пестрый, и рубашка у мужчины была с узорами, да и украшений побольше. Он был блондин, т.ч. мне повезло с цветом волос Х) А дракона я не смогла покрасить, каким он был во сне.
Сюжет рисунка не прямо взят из сна, но зато характер героев на нем немного виден. Мужчина охмурил очередную богатую распущенную дуру, которую ему приказали убить, зарезал ее и сидит у окна уставший, снимая на время маску. А дракон смотрит, все ли они сделали правильно.
