Warren ~I Am No Wolf~ by Guardian-Beast Warren ~I Am No Wolf~ by Guardian-Beast
Since I've been rather ill this week, I opted for some more painting practice. As Warren has been my primary muse as of late, I felt like doing some portrait work with him in his full-human and full-foo-lion forms. (his halfway transformed image is here [link] )
If you are wondering why he's wearing a yellow shirt with pink butterflies, well, he is rather fond of a certain flutter-shy pony from a girl's cartoon show. [blush] He's a bit of a craft enthusiast, as there is little clothing selection for guys his size, so he often paints and customizes his own shirts.

Despite being so pale, I tried to give him features that were not simply Caucasian. He lacks most skin, hair, and eye pigmentation as a side effect of being a non-human hybrid.

I based the nose and face shape of his foo-lion form on a clouded leopard, as they have the largest canine teeth of all extant feline species. I also love their unique nose shape!

In this image, he is visiting a den of debauchery held by the local contingent of succubi, trying to find information on what is conning young warlocks into summoning horrors from beyond our universe. Earlier that night, he has lost the fingers of his right hand trying to maul a wayward outsider's tendril. The succubus mocks him, chiding him as he appears to still have his hand. She expects that, as he is running with the alpha of a local wolf pack, he should be another werewolf. He replies with "Well, I am no wolf." Thanks to his inhuman recuperative prowess, his hand is nearly healed.

I'm still working bit, by, bit on the other projects on my list.

finally got myself to sit down and focus on this pic and the comment. been put it and others off way to long. *bows in apology*

i do have to say this is surely a fantastic way to bring yourself some fun well getting back on your feet. :3 your description of the whole scene is nicely detailed with a sweet little hint of innuendo. *snicker*

the faded scarring effect on his hand is IMPRESSIVE! the subtle curvature of each fold of skin, and the half focus on it generated by the scene are fantastic. it catches the eye without dragging it from the rest of the picture, and that seems really hard to do with something so detailed normally. i think your choice of his alternate form, "risen above it" was a truly poetic detail. :D

i have to admit, i did have a bit of a chuckle finding out he's a brawny. :rofl: i can't really blame him with how light and fluffy of a character he is, though it is still a fun chuckle. and to be honest; tell i read that part, i thought it would be more along the lines of of kurama's outfits from yu yu hakusho. handsome....but always a little girly. XD

i admit i would not know the difference in noses if you had chosen any other large feline, not without you mentioning it. that is due to my complete lack of study over lack in your skill though. of that, i have no doubt. :lol:
i did wanna say though, it seems to really work well for him. :D

btw, i'm intrigued that you chose to give both forms a few, "beauty marks" *snicker*

this pic is epic and love how it came out but it does have it's little flaws.
1.the eyes are a bit slanted from each other.
2.bring ear just a lil down.
3.the lips are a lil weird but if you wanted them to look like that then it's perfectly fine.
4.you could edit the shading and highlights on the hands.
other then that i love the piece itself and iI think you did a really good job on it.

Thanks for the pointers! I was trying to make it look like his head was tilted downward slightly, but his hair and the shading masks it, so his eyes and ears are a little odd. I'll have to figure out how to fix that, along with his hands...

His lips are meant to be a ridiculously pouty, and slightly feline in shape (with a small cleft) it's one of his defining features. The poor guy gets teased with fish-lips and octopus-lips jokes all the time.

Thanks again!
