**Major Spoiler for Wolves of the Beyond : Lone Wolf!**
Faolan reached the flats all to soon. The wolves closed in on him again, steering him toward something brighter than the sun. Too late Faolan saw it, a wall of fire in the gap between the two lakes. It was a defile. They were hunting him as he and Thunderheart had hunted the caribou.
There was no sound except for the wolves breathing. He was being driven into a wall of fire. He could feel its heat reaching for him. An immense heat. He could hear in now. Crackling. Spitting. The fiery tongues licking the air, gulping, raging. Closer and closer he was driven.
I have no choice but to die.
The words streaking through his mind angered him profoundly. The fire was upon him. The sun reeled in the sky was the word NO! exploded in his brain. He opened his jaws and his chest expanded with air, as if he were swallowing the sky. I have jumped for a tree, jumped for a raven, jumped for a cougar. I shall jump for the sun!

Phew! :phew: So, this is what I've been working on for 3 days, with breaks of course. A fan art for Wolves of the Beyond: Lone Wolf that has been sitting on my computer for a while now.
I'm happy with it! :) Especially Faolans fur, you can't really see it now with the smoke, but I came up with a new technique for my fur and I think it turned out pretty good :aww:. And the lake! I've never truly attempted water on P.N before, how you think it turned out?
The only thing thats really bugging me is the rocky-hill-cliffy thing in the back...I fail at rocky-hill-cliffy things X3
This is the scene at the end of the book when some of the wolves of the beyond are trying to kill Faolan, thinking he has 'foaming mouth disease'. In the sky you see Gwynneth (for those of you who have read gog and not wotb, can you guess who's daughter that is? ;3) and the three front wolves in the back are from left to right - Heep, Duncan MacDuncan, and the Sark of Slough. The rest are just fill ins :la:

I love how you did this ^^. Especially the effects that you used for the flames, water, and shadows. I also love the little cluster of wolves you have there (the Sark looks nice, so does Duncan and Heep).

xD nice! Faolan is just such a good, good character. Heep is just... rude. He totally deserved that in the last book. Go Caila!

I'm on the second book, waiting to get the next four, and I wondered if there are ONLY six books. Is that correct?

I like the facial expressions.
Faolan: (desperate) "I shall jump for the sun!"
Heep and others: (disbeleif) "I can't beleive this! How is he jumping so high?"
