Walk With Me? by Howlitzer Walk With Me? by Howlitzer
My entry for the 2010 :iconwerewolf-calendar: contest.

Edit: apparently I have to mention the words " werewolf calendar contest " in the artist's comments for DA to allow them to add it to the group. So, having said that...I just said it.

I did the concept sketch for this much earlier in the summer, but various things came up and prevented me from really continuing it until recently.

This was done in a series of caffeine-fueled rampages over the course of the last two weeks, mostly in SAI Paint Tool, with some touchup in CS4/GIMP.

I haven't really done a piece set at night, with rear lighting, that I was very happy with the shading job on until this one...

In terms of gender...don't bother asking. Near completion I realized I was not sure if I had intended this werewolf to be male or female...and honestly hadn't bothered trying to make it apparent.

I have a question. I am making a story on and have need of a fan art of a werewolf that you have made. I do not know if you have made this to be copyright. But would you be willing to let me use it as my story cover. I will give full credit of the drawing to you.

I will add though, depending on the nature of the story, I would prefer that my art is not included in any adult themed stuff. So, just to be sure on that before you do anything.

No legal names though (haven't included it, of course, for privacy reasons), but make sure to refer to my DA username.

Amazing work! I love the way the werewolf looks so strong and confident with themselves, yet not looking like an annoying person.

Lordy Howlz, when you put together a werewolf you really know how to put together a werewolf. And there's a uniqueness about your werewolves that I find incredibly compelling. I've seen so many artists with similar styles of drawing werewolves but yours just stand out from the crowd.

And this? This is your best yet. The position is excellent, there's actually some body language going on there. The lighting makes it all the more aesthetically pleasing, the colour of the eye is a nice contrast against the silver fur, the scratchings on the tree give it a unique touch, and if you don't mind me saying... that's an attractive werewolf whatever gender it might be.

Truly superlative.

This is by far the best piece you have ever done Howlz, it is an AMAZING piece of work in every single way! Best of luck in the contest!

Holy crap Howl? HOW long did this take you to do????

It;s amazing! o.o
Howlitzer Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks :D

All in all...not as long as the last uber-detailed piece I did. I was not working on it continuously for the last two weeks, just in several multi-hour marathons.

Using SAI instead of Photoshop for the majority of it really helped it flow better though...if for any other reason than it simply starts and runs much faster than Photoshop.
sugarpoultry Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Wow, this is AWESOME dude! This is like your best piece ever! :D :D
OfficerBadger Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2010
Very atmospheric, I dig it. The werewolf's expression and fur are also very nicely done.
Zaluke Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2010
Utterly beautiful I wish I could take this beautiful noble werewolf paw and walk with them to where ever. Leaving them unknow to gender helps the view relate to them I love this Howlitzer it so beautiful!
Dracontar Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2010
That is so awesome, sexy (if you don't mind me saying), and just badass at the same time. :D This is an awesome-saucy bucket of win! :love:
MazukaGhoul Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Excellent work! Love the pose and expression and detail! The background and lighting's great too :D
Erikku-Kun Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This is amazing, I love the scenery and pose.
shadowwolf9 Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2010
Dude. This is by far the best think you've done to date! Fantastic work! The fur looks great, and the trees and background are amazing.

As far as gender goes, my first impression was a female, but the more i look at it, the more i think male. Either way...

SERIOUSLY WOW! ._______.
jmillart Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
WOW NICE! This is another excellent entry.

The left hand seems a bit odd, but this is so much more perfect then I can do!
