Homolupus lycana by RedWolfmoon Homolupus lycana by RedWolfmoon
Sometimes I think my mind is really out there, that I have too much time on my hands even when I'm buisy... Making this... was definently one of those times.
Hopefully there aren't many spelling or gramatical errors and it looks atleast professional.

Page Layout, this animal encyclopedia book I have by... 'amber'

Note: Though it is by no means perfect. If you wish to use this as a reference, you are free to do so, just don't claim it as your own or do anything with it that would be disrespectful and I would greatly appreciate it.

Hey, would it be alright if I used this to help me write a book, these facts and the diagram really help, the numbers also help give a better image, would it be okay if I used it, or not, because I do a lot of research on "mystical" creatures such as sprites, Hippogriffs, Hippocampus, Manticores and other things, but when it comes to Lycan's my knowledge is limited, and I want to make my book really authentic, if you don't mind I would like to use your descriptions to better write my story!! Please get to me back as soon as you can!!!

I don't believe 'Lycans' are actually noted in the Cryptozoological field, though they touch upon werewolves or wolfmen slightly.
None of these are facts and are simple estimations on basically Anthropomorphic Wolves going by the data of real existing creatures such as wolves, bears, and hyenas.

Creative inspiration is one thing, but if you wish authenticity, delve yourself into some biology books and werewolf mythos instead.
Best advice, find facts and let your imagination run with them <3
Pleasant writing.

Thanks, but I think that this really helps more than a lot of the others that I tried to find, plus I really believe even if it isn't in that field it really should be, but thanks, if you ever want to read my story I can tell you where it is!! Any way thanks so much!!

I read what you put in your "description" as you could call it, but it would bring me peace of mind to know that you still gave your consent

Earth is pretty awesome, even without bipedal wolves.

Thank you for letting me know. Finger dyslexia ^^; Brain says one thing, digits type something else.

Eventually I'm planning on making a nicer version of this with digital coloring rather then scanned and poorly pasted. This piece is old, but I'm always glad to see that people really like it.

I do not have Skype, I try to keep myself as out of the computer world as possible. My interneting is pretty much just here and emails ^^;
Keeps my world simple. haha Feel free to send me a Note though, always willing to talk.

I draw for fun, sometimes for small commissions, but mostly for fun.

I regret to say that I don't really have the dedication to be a part of a project like that, though I do wish you great luck on it.
Hope it turns out nice ^^

Great reference for anybody who would want to do Lycans, like me!!! I can't wait to try drawing one and maybe try to do an animation with the help of the reference of the walking wolf that you put. I also like the vital Statistics that is given who is great went you do characters charts. Thanks

It's pretty cool. I like how it's pretty scientific :)

The one part that bothered me is the lifespan. Humans can live longer than werewolves/lycans? lol, at least we'd live longer.

otherwise, the piece is pofessional looking and clean. It's very nice.

The Lifespan is merely an estimation and these are technically not 'werewolves', they do not transform into humans at all, they are their own breed.

While some can live to be 80 or 90, most live only into their 60's.

Well done my friend. ^^ Wel done. I shally clap for you. :clap: I prefure these type of weres over the ugly horrorfyedones (wich I think to be geneticly altured humans who are trying to be a werewolf through all the wrong ways) or the were-bears we see in New Moon.....what has the world come to...were-bears...honistyly?

I know what you mean, though I do believe in many types of Werewolves, THESE are in change permanently. Although I do like the shifters every now and then, on majority, I prefer these guys.

I hate the 'were-bear' things are pretty messed up, haven't seen New Moon, I've sworn off all things Twilight. Though I did see 'Cursed' a 2005 film and the werewolf looked like a fucking Koala! I'm not kidding! A very angry Koala and when they shifted, they lost ALL HAIR only to grow it back again? I was like... 'WTF!!??'. Koala Werewolf --> [link]

I like to see diffrent transformations from diffrent movies my all time favorites are Hellsing and American werewolf in london...I guess I like the cursed one but yeah all the hair loss was weird and the were didn't even resembal the chick...she was blonde and the wolf was brown :/

RedWolfmoon Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2010
Yeah, I just thought it was stupid. American Werewolf in London is good, I liked that movie a lot and, though I don't care for the Hellsing person or vampires, it was rather well done. The style of werewolf was much more original then most they come up with.

Every time I've done anything to get my hair 'straight' it just becomes wavy, confused the hell out of the salon folk. "I just don't get why it isn't working" Lol. Plus, I have crazy thick hair too, 'lush' they call it, more so then most people. Fear my foofy hair!!!!

Also, my hair has 3 names 'Flopsy', 'Mopsy', or 'Cottontail' depending on the day and if you saw it on those 3 different days, you would totally understand. XD

very well done. My only pointer is that the heights and weights seem a bit off. There are those who believe the Homo sapien Lycanus stands nearer to nine feet tall and weighs upwards of 400 pounds of mostly muscle.

HOWEVER!!!

To each their own opinions.

This chart was designed as a -general- chart. Like wolves, felines, and other species, there are different breeds. This is not really showing that additional aspect. I am aware that Shoulder height is rather short, however, that is because there is a great amount of slouch in bipedal posture, when I get a bit of time on my hands, I will make sure to elaborate and even make a few similar charts for such other sub species.

This is awesome. I love your view on lycans/werewolves. Something that stood out to me was the mane. I never really quite liked the idea, but after seeing this I started to think that well, a human has hair, so it makes sense that it would be translated into a mane on a lycan. Awesome job overall. =D

Thank you, it took me a while to get this sheet the way I wanted. I thought of a lot of very odd details, yet some of them just didn't make the cut for this.

Side Fact: While in Lycan form, it is possible to estimate the length of their human hair. Commonly, the ratio is approximately that they grow 3-4 inches of hair for every 1 inch while in human form. This may be a problem, especially for most females or males with much facial hair and braiding becomes common practice.
