Hi everyone!

This is a raffle price for my long-time follower foxstory! Thank you for supporting me for so many years now! I had trouble with the design of your OC, and tweaked it a little around the head, I hope you won't mind. 
This painting took around 8h to make. I used Paint Tool SAI ver. 2 and my H610 pro tablet to make it!

I also did a really cool speedpainting video, which you can find there!

Don't hesitate to have a look at my ongoing raffle! It's mostly just me picking OCs that inspire me and making free art from time to time!

Also there are multiple versions of this painting which you can find there 

Special thanks to Sakkali  and everyone who helped me decide which version to keep in the end :)

Thank you very much for creating this excellent picture. I can see so many elegant details throughout the scene. From the ripples of light and shadow across the icy landscape to the distant hills and peaks, the entire background has a refined look. The wispy aurora borealis generates an elegant, mysterious illumination for the nighttime scene. Your attention to detail in painting realistic wolf anatomy has produced a wondrous result. From the paws and claws to the features of the face, your mastery of the realistic portrait is evident. The flowing fur coat emerges from the rich interplay of highlights and shadows across the wolf body. The expression creates something of an uplifting mood for the whole picture. I greatly appreciate you having created this portrait of my gray wolf character Lauren. Thank you for the alternate version and the pagedoll version with no background. Awesome work!

That is so much effort??? I can draw for ages of the subject of the piece but once it comes to backgrounds I just flop after a hour

Well I did worse than that lmao
But I was so exhausted at the end, I just wanted to get on with it

I relate so much
thats me when it gets to the shading stage, I just begin to rush so I need to save and start again later but with a speedpaint you cant do too much of that unless you want to play around in editing for ages
