"Reminding me of a friend..."

When Alcatraz was a pup in his old pack he had a very close friend named Gabitrix. She loved how beautiful the world was and loved to drag Alcatraz on adventures to find lovely places with her. She slowly grew on the head strong young male and soon he found himself looking forward to these outings more than anything else. The two were inseparable. This was one of their favorite places to be. It was close to the main den of their pack.

Unfortunately, Gabitrix was killed during the slaughter of his pack. She had fled to the lake in hopes to find Alcatraz there, or find somewhere to hide in the place she thought of most as a safe haven. But the enemies followed her there. After the attack, Alcatraz found her dead body bleeding by the shore. That was the experience that changed him from that fiery and head strong young pup into the more reserved and bitter adult who he is now. He still misses her sometimes, and that is a reason he searches the land for beautiful places! Because it makes him feel like he is home again, back with Gabitrix, and with his old pack before that terrible attack.

but wait...

Gabitrix is alive! :icontisea: read Alcatraz's story and thought it would be awesome if Gabitrix actually lived through the attack, hanging just on the brink of life until she was rescued and nursed back to health by an old loner she-wolf.

May do more art about Alcatraz's past! Perhaps when he watched his father die... I might not, though, that would be awful sad! Besides, you guys have already seen one of the two times Alcatraz has cried... you don't need to see both xD And I really tried on the background... I usually just scribble something down but I felt like I needed a beautiful scene to accurately portray these two.

This song (www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9BtTr… ) is what his backstory is based off of, and what his voice sounds like.

Thank you! I've never made a background like this before. I was dreading it, but it was actually kinda fun, and this is probably one of my favorite drawings I've ever done just because of it xD I should invest more time into learning to make nice backgrounds.

How long do your backgrounds take usually? In comparison to the actual character drawings anyway.

Yeah they are really fun and relaxing to do once you get into it! Hmm well my background typically take anywhere from 1 hour (like the one with Saba and Haldi) to 5 hours (the Hexa & Ivan one). It usually takes me about 2 to 3 hours to sketch, line, and color as well

Did I do her justice? :) I can't do smudgy markings that well with PSE... I don't know how to really. xD But I'm glad you like it. And I hope the little description is consistent enough with Gabitrix's character!
