This Place by RavenTimberwolf This Place by RavenTimberwolf
A wolf comes to offer his musical prayer to the spirits at this sacred pond.

I was feeling a little pressed with my artwork, because I really only had one piece up at the time, and so I found an old gesture drawing and turned it into a more defined, complete drawing.

With this piece I spent a lot of time playing around with hues and anatomy. I must have changed the leg and arms at least a hundred times before I finally finished it ha ha. In art, werewolf anatomy is extremely varied, and I guess it depends on one's style and external artistic influences.

The hardest thing about this piece I'd have to say was the bushes. Man, I had never really drawn foliage, and its extremely hard to draw and paint, because everything is extremely random. As humans, we have this inclined mental idea that everything has to be orderly, symmetrical, and perfect, so I had to learn to be a little more random in my art.

Done on 9x12 Bristol paper with pencil

Absolutely superb piece. I think the time you took on this was definitely worth it. Given the simply gargantuan amount of various werewolf anatomies, this is one I prefer. Again, absolutely super piece, with a quality I could only dream of matching.

I understand you XD It's an annoying subject when it comes to draw background, sometime I just leave it out of focus.

Ooh, very nice. :3 This almost looks like a photograph, if only there were a little more content in the sky--maybe some shading at the top for the darker gradient of the higher sky. n.n
