Okami by Silent-Neutral Okami by Silent-Neutral
I used a lot of references for this white wolfy, but this drawing is kinda old now and I can't remember where I found those refs.. One of them was a photo of a howling wolf.

Anyway, A lot of work went into this - I thought I could finish this in just a few days or a week thinking "Oh, it's just fur I'm painting, it's pretty straight forward" and then several months later "WHY IS THIS TAKING SO LONG". Please enjoy my pain lol

As for this game. It's so freaking colourful that I couldn't even complete it - All I did was run around making flowers. It was so nice a game that I was satisfied just running around doing nothing. Lol..but i never beat it unfortunately, soo I dont know what actually  happens.

That's a LOT of fur. How long did it take to draw it?

I knoww, it did my hand in.. I finished it within 5 months of starting simply because I was trying to figure out an easier way to paint the fur...and when it wasn't working out, I went the long way of painting every strand :'D this was a big illust for me, and they usually take me long time to finish. Actually, I'm surprised I did this in 5 months lol

Oh woah, that sounds really hard. That reminds me of a drawing of a zentangle octopus that took me three months to make. I was slow because of my habit to procrastinate, choosing which patterns to draw, and shading them.

haha yeah... I procrastinate too, so that also doesn't help. If I think too much about how to draw something, I quickly lose interest.

Lol, I used to doubt myself too when I had a big drawing to do along with a quick deadline, which was the reason why I don't take art classes anymore. Rushed pictures don't look good.

My secret is: spending thrice as much time as you should - that should give enough time to dedicate to the tiny annoying details without rushing them..
Oh and the references, otherwise you wouldn't have said masterful x'DDD But thanks cal!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH YOU LIE! About the references bit, it's masterful for the sheer time and effort you've clearly poured into this for it to become the shining example of awesomeness it is!

perhaps! If I had my own personal silent hill, my inner demons would look bdsm-ish and they'd probs be holding dildos as weapons, and shout critisizms "NEEDS MOAR FUR!" X'D
