Werewolf Calender 2009 - July

By Novawuff
10K Favourites
Werewolves are monogamous, and almost always choose to have several children. Though their mating habits are unseasonal, like humans, they do experience a 'mating season,' where behavior will change slightly due to the similarities from their wolf relatives. The female has 1-2 puppies that will be born in and remain in the form she is at the time of birth. They will learn to shift four years later.



This is, by far, the /biggest/ and LONGEST piece of digital art I've ever seen to completion!
So, yes, I know there are still mistakes, and you can point them out if it makes you happy, but I'm not gonna go back and fiddle with anything anymore.. I've been staring at this thing for over 9 months now. :P

::::: Do be sure to check out [link] to order one of these bad boys! :::::

I'm also offering prints of just this image :}
it's displayed here at 1/4 of the working size.. it will make a very lovely large print.

And just cause it's not super obvious, it's supposed to be a mommy and daddy werewolf snuggling in the wildflower field with their daughter. The alternative title to this piece was going to be "Daddy's Girl". :}

- Other Things -

The reference I used for the wolf on the left is by the amazing Bryan Sears!

I did a tutorial on how I painted all the fur for this picture here: [link]

Here's a detail shot:

the WIP:

annnnnnnnnd last but not least, special thanks for everyone who commented and helped with the WIP's for this, and for my dear darling husband, Jared, who helped me out big time with the anatomy of the daddy wolf's arm and hand!

And this is officially the most hyper-realistic wolf I've ever seen on DA. Even streaming it to my 65 inch TV, it is impossible to even tell that he is drawn. I really wish I could just buy a giant poster of this thing!
