Hawthorn
"I... very much appreciate my father's company. He is kind, but not overly. He teaches me instead of coddles me, and I feel... powerful when I'm with him. Like I matter."

Leto
"Ah! Had it not been for Athena's kindness so many months ago, I doubt my dear brother and I would be alive to tell you the tales we both share! I am forever in her debt and thankful for the company we now keep because of it. Seven, my loyal friend. You make me smile even under the worst of days. Kane, your strength and loyalty are brilliant! Angus... ah, well, you live, so I can't complain!"

Damien
"Mother has not failed me just yet, nor do I think She would ever lead me astray from the path that I have been given. I do not need to be thankful for this-- it is Her duty, such as obeying her is mine."

Ruffian
"...there ain't nothin' left for me, the fire took it all away."



AAH GUYS!! LOOK, I DID IT! THREE DAYS OF SOLID WORK. 
I had this planned immediately once I saw the MSE for this month and boy this is the first thing in a good while I'm really proud of. 
It sort of goes from pure intentions to lost cause really, since I think each character sort of has their own idea of what they should be thankful for / what has gone well for them. 
In total it probably took close to 10 hours? Give or take. 

As a sidenote!
I'm extremely grateful at what DotW has offered me as an artist over the course of this last year. It's crazy how much time has gone by since I first joined, and looking at it now I can't exactly believe I've been with you guys for so long. I've met a bunch of wonderful people and I've felt at home here, one of the first places in a long time that has grown on me in such a way that even the bad bits every now and then aren't exactly enough to push me out. I enjoy writing with you guys, and I love seeing the characters take on lives of their own in this crazy little wolf group. 

So thank you guys for this last year, I hope there are more to come!

Tagging those featured in the picture!

This is legitimately breathtaking? ;o; Holy cow Coy! You always have such beautiful art, and I love the literal spectrum of your characters' personalities, it's shown so well here! I keep coming back to stare at this x'D You portray everyone so well! Athena looks FREAKING GORGEOUS too and Traz is spot on!

aw gosh wyn thank you so much! 
it was definitely out of my normal range of art since i like to do solo pictures
but i figured it'd be really interesting to see them all mooshed together since
they're all so different from one another. 

im really really glad you like how athena turned out! i was worried
i may not have drawn her correctly until halk gasped when i showed her |D <3

Hnnggg. Every time you post one of these comics I just start freaking out. This is amazing! Every. Single. Panel. Little Hawthorn and daddy are adorable as ever. <3 Leto with his companions. Damien being Damien. And that Ruffian panel is so cool. I love every single one! :la:

Oh Coy!!! That Alcatraz x Hawthorn panel is sooo stunning! I love the angle you chose, I feel like I am right there in an intimate teaching moment between the two. The shafts of light hitting them is so beautiful, my gosh you do my Alcatraz SUCH justice, I love him in your style! <33 Thank you so so much for featuring him!! <3

My second favorite panel HAS to be the Leto one! Seven and Athena both look so gorgeous in your style, I love them! <3 And everyone just looks so happy! (except for Angus but eh he'll come around!!)

I love them all, though! Poor Ruffian... ugh :C He and Shen ought to meet again sometime, see how badly each other has ended up ;-; xD

<3 man i am so so glad you think so! i really wanted to work out
that sort of bond they have in the picture so im glad i captured it well enough 
alcatraz is such a blast to draw, there needs to be more ticked wolves in the domain for sure!

and yess the leto one is definitely a star i think! i really adore how they all came together

also i agree with that B)) perhaps a plot for the future?

DAMNNNNN
This is beautiful. I'm glad your proud of it because U SHOULD BE ITS FANTASTIC. I love every single panel, they're all wonderful representations of each character. I adore Leto's panel because all the characters featured look so natural and organic in the way they are interacting with one another, you get a real sense of family. And of course Ruff's panel is so dramatic, so chaotic, a perfect representation of his state of mind rn. The fire looks amazing and his gaze looks so intense. Thank you for including my precious child I'm so excited for everything to comeeeee
and you know i lov u alotl and dotw is da bomb, its where all the cool kids at fer sure
