Werewolf Wednesday speedpaint, a little early. I wanted to use colors besides gray/blue/green for a change, and also do paint a werewolf in sunlight as opposed to moonlight.

Maybe she's a were-fox, maybe just a ginger werewolf. Fun fact: in the olden days, red hair was considered a sure sign someone was a witch or werewolf (there wasn't a lot of distinction back then, since witches could turn into wolves and werewolves got that way by selling their soul to Satan). Several folkloric werewolves are specifically described as being reddish-colored, but you hard ever see that in movies. The only one I can think of off the top of my head is Ginger in "Ginger Snaps", but as her lycanthropy progresses hair hair grows in white, so I don't know if she counts.

It too me way too long to find where this picture was originally from! It's just so gorgeous that I had to locate it and tell its creator what talent they have!

Absolutely beautiful :heart: I like that she could possibly be a were-fox (a kitsune maybe?)... then, or just a ginger werewolf hehe that made me laugh. Very ethereal piece :)

It's lovely stock. I actually found it by accident while looking for something else, and just had to use it.

The shape of her eyes and ears lends me to think werefox over werewolf, but the idea of setting the pic in day rather than night is brilliant and not seen often.

I have to say, this is the most graceful and elegant werewolf transformation I think I've ever seen. It's not grody and visceral, but it's still down to earth and you can see that the body is indeed going through a change that can be felt. The lighting and color scheme make for a warm and eye catching image.

Beautiful. The colors are very pleasant and warm. Maybe she's changing back from her werewolf form as the sunlight rises?
Somehow she does look more like a werefox, but I think that has more to do with the chest-fluff not continuing throughout. But she' still gorgeous <3

I've always wanted to study folklore from different regions. Just can't think of a career where that would come into good use ;p

I loved Ginger Snaps (I've watched all 3 of the movies, and I preferred the prequel to the other 2.)

Well, it's always fun to just study something for the love of it . . . I'm interested in all kinds of useless topics. :)
