White Imagination by Gewalgon White Imagination by Gewalgon
This time is the first time I drew Asél, the wolf-part of Alvrericjas.
I already planned to draw this piece a long time ago, but today the muse kissed me, so there is it finally! ♥
The symbols below Asél arised spontaneous.
There you can see the Triple-Goddess symbol (The three moons) and the pentagram with some flourishes.

I hope you like it!

This is a stunning piece, very impacting and beautifully made, however not without some small flaws.

First off, before the critique, let me tell you that this is a beautiful drawing, executed very well. The stark contrast between the background and the wolf head itself helps bring it together, I think.

One of the flaws that I picked up on was the wolf's muzzle. It's a bit on the short side, it looks more like a fox's muzzle rather than a wolf's. The eyes should slant a little more too, and the gap between the eyes seems a bit too small too. The ears would be a little more rounded at the top edge too, rather than having near perfect points.

Another flaw is the tonal range. You've used a lot of white to draw it, but it feels to me that you've left out a lot of the dark range of tone. Next time try and use a wider variety of tone, including the darker side.

Other than that, this is a truly spectacular piece. The flaws I have mentioned are small, and only appear after you have looked at it for quite a while. A tip for the future; every now and then, take a photo of what you are drawing and flip it horizontally, or simply put it up against a mirror. Flipping your work can make it easier to spot flaws in your work before it's too late to come back and change them. Great job on this, keep it up!

It's a little amusing that before I read the description, I was thinking the wolf looked strangely like Alvrericjas. I had to chuckle when I realized that I was right. Asél's eyes are what got me, because they were so familiar... Alv has a certain persona identified with and intertwined in her star-lit eyes. They are so intelligent and cunning. If she was shown--say, as a horse or a jay--you would still be able to know who it was. Such as in Asél's case. I love this piece not only because of the essence of your characters that you can imbue into your work, but because of the simple gracefulness with which you complete such a thing. Everything flows in harmony, bound together in mystic and inspiring ways. You draw attention here not only to the major things, but the smaller details like the symbols and the hidden meanings. Beautifully done. I think that the choice to do this in a mono-tone black, white, and grey was an excellent one, which causes the iconic green eyes to stand out.

Very beautiful! Wolfs were always my favourite animal (maybe that's because my own poweranimal is a wolf :D ) AsÚl looks great, and I like that this part of Alvrericjas still shows similarities with Alv, especially the eyes. The symbols are very pretty too, so elegant! 
Well done :heart: :D

Oh yes, I think people tend to have the same favourite animal they have as poweranimal^^ (Not always but mostly)
Because who could understand you better than your "own kind"?

Thank you very much! :heart:

Holy crap! A white wolf was in my dream for the last few nights! After your question about Alvrericjas (Did I spell that right?) visiting people's dreams I wondered if that's who the wolf was but I dismissed it as not. I guess I was wrong and he did visit me after all, but as AsÚl instead! I was in a familiar silver birch forest and it was a full moon. I was always sitting on a tree branch that reached the ground and grew across the clearing floor alongside a lake. The strange thing was the lake shone with an emerald green light and when i looked into it, it turned into AsÚl's eyes staring back at me, and then the water settled and I could see his face and body too. Then he walked out of the water and lay next to the branch I was sitting on. I remember stroking his fur, and being surprised it was warm and dry. The second dream was in the same place but he wasn't there, he padded through the trees to meet me. Then he told me "The worst is ahead but the end will be worth the pain... keep on the path you walk and in time you will be rewarded" Then he padded away. The last dream, last night's, I wasn't by the lake anymore but I was in the same clearing it seemed and there was a small campfire infront of me; I heard a howling through the forest. It stopped and I saw him come towards me again, but he just sat next to me and I remember the fire and moonlight reflecting silver and orange in his eyes. That's pretty amazing right?
