Arctic Glow by leelakin Arctic Glow by leelakin
KANOAAAAAAAAA. <3

So I thought of my old days at The Lion King Fanart Archive (which I left years ago) and remembered my one and only non-neopets wolf chara, Kanoa. XD (I think I also had a female one, but I never used her) So I drew him. And changed his design. 8D;;; This isn't really a satisfying design either, maybe I'll think of something else. Slightly. I kinda like the theme of him protecting the arcting or something. With glowy light red stuff. XDDD DESTROY ALL HUMANS WITH YOUR ARCTIC MAGIC. What?
Canine anatomy is teh_killing me, flarrrrrrr. I should draw their forms edgier and sharper (at least for the legs), but I always end up drawing soft shapes, which makes them look like cats. 8D;
Lions next, possibly? 0o0

awww STOP MAKING ME FEEL GUILTY LOLZ D;
I seriously haven't done anything neopets-related in like... 4 YEARS XDDD or 5. I don't even know 8D;;; Hell, I don't even HAVE lupes anymore. XDD I mean Tai used to be one of course, but she's much more of an independent chara now.

I dunno, I use the 3px brush in Photoshop XDDD I also draw pretty small (I never resize my pics), I guess that's also why it looks softer

The "reflection" isn't even correct actually, you'd see more of the wolf's underbelly from that point of view. XDDD But I'm lazy!

The lineart is amazing, it's so smooth and just.. awesome.. I always failed at linearts, hence why none of my own pics have any. ;P

I love that expression, the brows add a lot to the depth in his face, and it really looks awesome.

His design is just fine. :)

aww thanks XDD It's the other thing 'round for me, I fail so badly at outlineless art. XDDD It seems like the shapes escape me if I don't have outlines to keep them fixed. XD

Wow. This reminded me of the evil wolf dude from Balto. And how the wolves were very into this glow that emanated from the sun and ice, a sort of reflection. Anyways, it was a total blast from the past.

Awww Balto! XDD I haven't seen that movie in... 6 years or something. 8'D I can't even remember the glow thing XDDD

Right? It is a blast from the past. SOO reminiscent of being a little kid. That was such a good movie. I feel like Disney hardly makes mellow movies anymore...it's all action and major-league villains. But anyways, you must watch it again and see the Arctic Glow!!!!!!!!

I believe Balto wasn't by Disney. XDDD Thinking of it, Disney needs to make an animated movie about wolves!

Hah--just goes to show: When you're little, every movie seems like it was Disney (or Pixar, now that I think of it...remember that little lamp that would squish itself down and then pop up into an I to make Pixar? Hah). Yes, I can't believe Disney has not yet made a movie bout wolves...and all these years I thought....

well, technically, wolves played an important role in The Jungle Book, but they didn't appear that much. XDDD And Beauty and the Beast had a short scene with wolves too, but they were stylized as evil and ugly D:

HermioneJaneGranger Featured By Owner May 22, 2007
that's true---people have been mentioning beauty and the beast a lot lately, it seems, and i sorta kinda *koff* don't believe i ever saw it. I mean, we own like every disney movie there is except for that and...wow. Yah.
