Oceansoul by Paperiapina Oceansoul by Paperiapina
I had today a full schoolday of animation, but nothing to animate. But I somehow just happened to have some colored paper and my dear Derwent Studio color pencils with me, so you can guess I didn't let them to get bored.

Man I feel inspired!

This is actually a redrawn version of one of my older works. I wanted to check of I can draw any better than few years ago. Seems that I can. (Just for comparison, the old version is here: [link] )

I like how that water turned out.

Dark blue paper, Derwent Studio color pencils and not a single sketchline with pencil. Ha!

(And the first person to call her fat will get eaten. Thank you. ^^)

EDIT: Just to test it, I made this available as print. Let's see how people like it...

EDIT 2: Original is sold.

Why do I feel that besides the song "Ocean Soul", this was inspired by Sonata Arctica's "Full Moon" ;)

For the pic itself, one word is enough: awefriggenmegahypersuperiorsome.

Ohmy....What can I tell you...I so want this, that I may dare to trust the dA printing system. Because I really, really love the original for sale?

I love the water and the texture of the wolf's fur, and the have really improved, even thought I loved the older Ocean Soul picture.

Well, I'm pretty much wordless.....

Thank yous! ^^ That's pretty wordfull wordlessness I'd say. ;)
Well, I wasn't planning to sell the original... But because I do need some money I can always consider it. I hate to sound greedy, but it depends in how much you'd be ready to pay for it. ^^"

I don't know, since we are in different countries, our currencies are different, so I'm not sure how much you are expecting. I think Ocean Soul is pretty much worth 80.000-90.000 Chilean pesos, but I don't how much that's for you. I think its about 150 dolars. Plus, we'd have to think about the I think it's better if you set the price
Paperiapina Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2007  Professional General Artist
I can understand euros and US dollars. ^^
Well, if you'd give me 150 dollars, I'd happily sell this one, pay the shipping myself and draw you as detailed sketch commission for you as you'd want to.
daniii Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2007
Yeah? Wow, that'd be awesome. How should I pay for it? Paypal? (I trust paypal) Whenever I get to see my aunt I'll pay for it, since she's got an account at paypal and I always pay things through her, if you think paypal should be our option.

I really can't wait to have it hanging somewhere in my home =)
Paperiapina Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2007  Professional General Artist
Sure. I always work with Paypal when I'm dealing with international orders. ^^ My Paypal address is
And sooo, would you like to have that sketch commission too to go with it, or do you want to have only this Oceansoul piece? If you want the sketch too, what would you like me to draw?
daniii Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2007
Okay, I'll send the money through my aunt's paypal account when I see her (probably tomorrow).
It would be nice to have a sketch comission from you, but it's not enteirly neccesary. Perhaps you could just draw my character Makyo and sign it, so I can go all over the pace telling people I've got a picture done by you? It doesn't have to be detailed at all.

Odotas hetki, keräilen leukani lattialta..
..Herraisä. Vanha versio oli jo hieno, mutta siis vau! Hahmon asento, anatomia ja ilme sopivat kaikki yhteen, väriskaala lisää tunnelmaa.. ja liinan kangas, hahmon hiukset ja pärskeet näyttävät virtaavan juuri oikealla tavalla. Kaunista.
..nyt on kyllä pakko kaivaa Century Child naftaliinista..

Mielettömän upea etten sanoisi. *__*

I bet it looks lovelier in real life... the scan looks like it could use a little contrast adjustment to make it bolder.
Wolfcurse Featured By Owner May 15, 2007  Hobbyist
Wow, that looks so great ... the hair and water look absolutely amazing.
ArcticLoneWolf Featured By Owner May 14, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Great job on the water, and I love the facial expression! ^_^

Vast improvment. o.0 Amazing composition and the coloring is just lovely.
Psychopomp16 Featured By Owner May 14, 2007
oh, so beautiful, very serine and peaceful but still empowering! great work!
FlickaBee Featured By Owner May 14, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
wow this pretty!
She is NOT fat; for once I see an average weight wolf instead of the anorexic ones I seem to see A LOT. Anyway the texture, pose, and colors are beautiful. The new one compared to the old one is remarkable and you have improved so much over time. I envy your skills and way of drawing anthros.
Peachfuzz Featured By Owner May 14, 2007
The difference between the old and new is incredible. You've really improved with anatomy and textures. :clap: The shading and depth is much better, as well.

I just love this. :D It's a gorgeous piece, from the concept to the rendering. As I said, you have a wonderful skill with anatomy, texture, and depth. She looks really wholesome and healthy, too. Fabulous job!

Manchy007 Featured By Owner May 14, 2007
Wow this is definetly an improvement=D I really like it!
Larchzie Featured By Owner May 14, 2007
Upea : O Jotenkin niin... tunnelmallinen kuva! Kaikki näyttää todella hyvältä. Kuu on aidon oloinen, tähdet upeita. Hahmon ilme on onnistunut, samoin kuin asentokin. Etenkin noi hiukset menee hienosti, tuolla lailla elävästi. Pidän huivista. Ja noi pärskeet sitten! Aivan mielettömän hienot, aidot. Ihan liian upeaa. Suosikiksi menee, tietenkin!

oooh O.o it' pritty ^^
wolphie Featured By Owner May 14, 2007  Professional Photographer
This is frikken amazing! You have definitely made a vast improvement from the original, tho that one was very nice in itself ^^

Her hair is pretty and flows like silk strands, and the fur looks very plush *wants to hug her* :giggle:

I'll be buying a print for sure ;)
