the big bad by dypsomaniart the big bad by dypsomaniart
***print now available***
this started out as just a speedsketch, just for the sake of trying to draw a badass werewolf. the original sketch can be viewed in my scraps.
i kept looking at it and thinking how much i liked the pose and feeling of the pic, and that i should do something more with it, but the prospect of doing all that hair was too daunting.
but, i finally decided to give it a go, and it was fun at first. but then as the hours ticked by i got really sick of drawing hair. i had to do this in about 5 sittings, as after a couple of hours of hair detailing i couldn't handle any more. every single strand of hair on this fuzzy bastard was drawn seperately. i tried making up some brushes from multiple dots to do a few hairs at a time, but they gave too uniform a finish, and i wanted him to have coarse hair going everywhere.
but, it was good practice, and turned out pretty well, so i'm glad i did decide to have a crack at it.
no references were used for any of this, but i've always had dogs so i had a fair idea of how all the fur would go.
all done in photoshop cs2 with 12x18 wacom tablet.

How do you draw a totally awesome werewolf? One hair at a time. the big bad by *dypsomaniart is a testament to patience and dedication. I'm just glad he didn't give up on this one, it's just too killer of a drawing. ( Featured by Aeires )

Thankyou :) yeah I think the sketch may have just as much power as the final really. Polishing artworks to death is overrated I've decided.

That drawing is just another sign - I really gotta get a credit card, so I can order prints of this. It's just amazing. But all that time you put in it -- I would never have the patience to do each hair seperately. Great work - going to my favs.

you probably wouldn't want to, he's not house trained and he's always bringing corpses home and leaving bits around the place, plus he just wants you to play 'fetch' all the time, howls all night every time there's a full moon... On second thoughts you can take him ;)
