Color Grey by hibbary Color Grey by hibbary
The colored version of [link]

I wanted to experiment with the interplay of warm and cool shadows and steer completely clear of local color. This is the result.

This is beautiful! I love how it's quite peaceful with a rather serene mood ^^

Not to mention, Afghan hounds are one of my fave dogs! :heart:

I spend a lot of time on DA looking at various art and I must say I'm not overly fond of foxes with sixpacks & wolves pecks but every now and then you can come across something with so much style , warmth & character as to be utterly stunning ! Beautiful !

I'm not especially fond of that sort of thing either but it's what people pay for and if you want to stay out of a cardboard box sometimes you have to bow to that inevitability. :P

I know this has been here for years, but I just can't get enough of Khenti. i was delighted to be able to purchase some of your original pencil sketches of him at MFF 2012, and to finally meet you in person. Whenever I see him, I want to take him somewhere warm, buy him another cup of coffee, and ask him to tell me his story. He's a keeper. :)

Awww thanks, that's good to know :3 I like him a lot too and knowing that other people do as well makes me want to draw more of him.

I love the use of an Afghan here, as opposed to some other breed, it just really made the image for me. Beautiful.

Propably one of the greatest pieces i've EVER seen somehow xD
Rainblossom Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2009
This is gorgeous. Though most grey-toned paintings are meant to evoke feeling so sadness or loss, I get a very calming, peaceful vibe from this work. Excellent job. :)

Wow - the almost-monochrome looks fantastic! So delicate and moody :D
blue-elem3nt Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The cools and warms you gave gives a raw feel to it, suits the piece very well I'd say. I love it!

Ooo wow shadows...I tried a similar idea once - I took a sketch someone else had done for me and experimented with sunset shadows playing from behind, but I didn't quite get it right. Not to mention, you've taken it to another level with the cool and warm shadows, it completely brings it to life. Well done!
Mismante Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2009
Really lovely character design, I get such a good idea of who the character is... And fantastic coloring.

A wonderful dignified anthro scene reminiscent of a foggy day. Thrilling to look over to absorb the wonderful details. I wish there was much more of this sort of thing, and a lot less of the pin-up sort.

Raemo Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2008

I love the way the colors in your pallette interact with one another. Great job! :heart:
awww this reminds me of my old dog. if he was ever an anthro then this is what i would imagine him to look like.

Wow, I really like this. If you don't mind me asking, what media did you use on this? Is it ink pen with water colors? Regardless, I love the look and feel of this. Awesome.

Really love this
ReallyTallMidget Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2008
I can't remember if I commented already or not (I think I may have on the earlier version?), but I have to say that this is one of my favorite pieces of your's. I really love all the textures, and the colors -- it gives the whole thing a very calm, neutral sort of feeling. His expression is great, and that tiny puff of breath sort of adds to the whole mood of the picture.

Very nice work :3
roundtable Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2008
I missed the non-color of this. It has a strong lonely vibe, this may be because I'm lonely atm. I believe the bird really adds to the image a lot.
botchiball Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2008
very nice : ).
dogmaster4 Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2008
