"Run from it all..."

- - -

Here's one of my newest rp characters! His name is Vihaveri (viha = anger, veri = blood) and I rp with him in Hukanpolku.
I've been trying to develop my style lately. I know it doesn't develop if you force it, but still..! Trying things out etc.!

Here's Vihaveri's reference sheet (in case you want to draw him heehee)

Good lord, haven't seen such a wonderful display of movement in a while! Have just come across your channel today and am blown away. Really interesting to note the painterly style yet the clear cut fur edges particularly on the underbelly, really aids the silhouette, I must remember to try this :)

How many layers did you use roughly?

Ooh, thank you very much! It's very interesting to hear about the painting style, since I hadn't even thought about it.
There's about 26 layers..! But a lot of them are done like... "I'll test how this looks and if it's bad, I can just delete the layer".

Thanks for your reply! I know how busy things can get.
No worries, you're welcome, it's just nice to see something different :)

I get that completely, all too often I try to merge some layers so there is less of them and then find I need them separate later haha, so now I keep them all then delete later. I always tend to ask about layers as I take an interest in how people work :) I've learnt a lot of people work on very few!

;) Right, that there?  That's too cool for words, so I won't embarrass myself by trying.  All I can utter in light of its awesomeness is "guh!"  So pretty, so unique, so....  guh!

Omg, I thought the exact same thing when I saw this... it's wolf link from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

(I see someone else already told you that, but eh, why not?)

c: happy other people sees this resemblance

Lengend of Zelda: Twilight Princess has Link transform into a Wolf that looks similar to this. What brought the resemblance in (for me) is how the background in this piece is also orange, similar to the "Twilit zones" in the game.

Of course, we can sit around all day talking about similarities, but brush strokes have a distinct difference from how things looked in that game.
