Commission for TrooBerger of her OC Kiernan. Kiernan is a werewolf mercenary who is also a member of the Queen's private guard. The request for this image was to showcase the duality between wolf and man in a subtle way. In this world the moonlight is what allows Kiernan to transform so in this image the parts that are in the moonlight are wolf, and the parts that are in the shadow are human. It's subtle but it was such a fun request/challenge to solve! Kiernan is high up in a tower, waiting for his latest target. Even though it was night, I wanted the city to feel alive and I had a ton of fun with the glow from the city streets. Fun behind-the-scenes fact: The chat helped to design the raven-skull-gargoyles he's leaning on and to continue that motif I included an unkindness/conspiracy of ravens flying below. ⁠⠀

I'm still so truly appreciative of you being able to make this work so that both sides could show at once and not look strange. And your take on the armor is wonderful!! Not to mention how the entire background and setting fit what was in my head perfectly. Thank you so, so much, yet again!

I like that, very “Pirates of the Caribbean”: wolvish ONLY when direct moonlight touched his body. Also convenient for clothes because they transform (or disappear) accordingly, so he doesn’t have to worry about shredding them or going about half naked in human form.

Yea luckily the character maintains the armor in the wolf form otherwise the transition between the two would have been much tricker haha!

Just the boots 🥾 vanish and reappear?

Haha yep! That was how this image was art directed.

The director has no clue how to accommodate for that detail yet. :D
