This is a painting I completed for, and sold as print and limited jumbo canvas print at EF21 this year.

I do love werewolves and canines but people never seem to believe me when I say that. Few people know that I had a looong "wolf phase" many years back ^^; Anyway, this is my way of showing my appreciation for them and proving that felines isn't all I can do.

I had a lot of fun with this, doing some very strong lighting and vibrant colours. I hope you like it!    

P.S. the title has nothing to do with the books/movies, and everything with the colour scheme and the picture's own story. x3

Wow, das ist schon eine sehr schicke Zeichnung.
Schöne Szene, es passt alles sehr gut zusammen und von den Details ist es schon richtig toll.

Ohja, ich kann mich noch daran erinnern als du einen Wolf als persönlichen Charakter hattest. ^^
Würde mich auf jeden Fall freuen auch weiterhin Wölfe oder Werwölfe aus deiner Hand zu sehen!

Oh du sprichst ja deutsch xDD
Also ich meine, dass der Fels wirklich aussieht, als sei er aus Gestein und das Feuer so lodert und die Wolken so zart aussehen...
Als könnte man es mit den Fingern ertasten O.o

:D Danke! Ich benutze zum Teil Fotos und Texturen, über die ich dann drübermale, sodass es realistischer aussieht ^.^ Die Wolken sind allerdings komplett von Hand.

Das ist so schön *_* Dieses detaillierte Fell, das muss so viel Geduld in Anspruch genommen haben O.o Aber es hat sich gelohnt, das Bild ist echt super.

this is beautiful!

i can't get over how you paint fur. about how long does it take to do all of it on a picture like this? it seems like it'd be quite a while, but definitely worth the effort!

Thank you very much! :)

I didn't clock myself on this, probably somewhere in the neighbourhood of 10 hours?
