Most werewolves live in isolated areas, where there is open forest to enjoy. Fewer claim territories in deserts, plains, and even cities. Werewolves are endangered, so there are few packs, most are loners or in monogomous couples. Only near cities are there real dangers of territory overlap.

Kesäkuu. \o/

Finally! This took me so many hours and days. But here's my picture for the upcoming Werewolf Calendar (it's already available for preordering!) [link] by *Myenia and ~Yellow-eyes, (is it both?) I got june and was very happy about it, since it's my favorite month and also my birthday month! But I was even more happy that I got asked to join this project! :o it was a great honor.

The picture is supposed to resemble wildlife photography art, and the camera is 'focused' on the werewolf. So that's why the background is so blurry. The background was the hardest part of this picture and every time I added there something, it looked really stupid, so this is what I finally ended up with. First there was just grass but then it looked so empty that I added there the water after seeing a picture of some swamp forest.

Photoshop CS3
34 layers x_x
Original size 3300 x 2550, 300 dpi

But instead of drawing it you ended up taking it and slapping a filter on it in photoshop? I don't approve of that, sorry.

Yeah it's pretty clear that it's stolen.  It's cute when new users think they can fool seasoned artists/Photoshop users with elementary tricks like filters.

my pleasure! I have to confess I think your artwork is absolutely amazing. I love the way you draw your wolves and don't worry about spending days, weeks, months even years on a piece of work cos the longer you take to finish it, the more effort you'll be putting in and the more effort made, the more faves you get!

my pleasure! Keep up the good work! And two things:
1. Feel free to have a look at some of my artwork!
2. I'm starting a card company and if you want me to make you a digital or hand-drawn card for someone then please tell me! It gives you more time to do other things, it's hand-made so it's better than just buying one because it shows you care about the quality AND I can even leave the inside totally blank, send it to you and you can write in it. (Or it can be done all digitally with your message inside it and delivered straight to THEIR door!)

I'm trying to get as many people looking at my buisness as possible. If you want, I can send you the basic outline of your card so if you want anything bigger, smaller, fatter or whatever then you can let me know and you can also tell me the colours. I might be posting some of my bear hug card designs on here for people to look at. It's for things like friendship cards. The message with probably say something like: 'Give me a bear hug!' or something.

Sanalla sanoen fantastista. Todella upeaa, yksityiskohtaista ja realistä työtä. Tämä on ehkä.pä suosikkityöni sinulta, sen verran kunnioitustaherättävää jälkeä olet saanut aikaan. Rakentavaa kommenttia on paha lähteä antamaan, koska tässä kuvassa ei ole todellakaan mitään valittamista.

Ensinnäkin kuvan sommittelu on loistava. Voi olla että puhun lä.piä päähäni, mutta ainakin minulle tulee mieleen että sommittelulla on jotain tekemistä kultaisen leikkauksen kanssa. Tausta on hyvin onnistunut ja henk.koht. mieleeni; se on taianomainen mutta samalla luonnonläheinen. Lisäksi ilmassa näkyvät, pienet vaaleammat pisteet (mitä ne sitten ovatkaan) ovat silkkaa rakkautta ja omiaan lisäämään realistisuutta. Usein erilaiset tilat kuten juurikin ilma, metsä, kuvataan liian "steriilisti" ilman yksityiskohtia. Olet saanut taustan tehtyä taitavasti siten, että se on juurikin, mitä olen useasti jo toistanut, yksityiskohtainen muttei liikaa jotta se vetäisi huomion tuosta sudesta pois. Lisäksi erilaiset pinnat (vesi, puiden kaarna) näyttävät ihan siltä itseltään. Täytyy ihailla sinua senkin johdosta, etenkin kun itselläni vesi tuppaa näyttämään siniseltä aavikolta jossa kasvaa lumpeita. Mutta, kun pinnoista puhutaan niin voiton vie ehdottomasti sutesi turkitus. Se näyttää uskomattoman aidolta monine kerroksineen, voin melkein tuntea miten sen karva menisi sormissani. '_' Myös varjostukset tuovat omalta osaltaan tähän tuuheutta. Otuksen anatomia on ihanaa katseltavaa, etenkin silmät ovat onnistuneet hyvin. Ne ovat juuri oikean muotoiset ja niiden kirkas väri vetää huomion niihin heti, ja tämä tuo samalla kuvaan tasapainoittaen kuvan koko värimaailmaa. Kokonaisuus on siis todella upea, pidän tästä erittäin paljon. Osaatko yhtään sanoa, kauanko sinulla meni tuon luonnoksen tekemiseen?

Joka tapauksessa tämä on rakkaus. :heart:

Ohhoh, kiitos paljon kommentista! Kiva että tykkäät~ :)
luonnoksesta en kyllä tarkkaan muista, hiukan enemmän aikaa kyllä kuin normaalisti kun oli aika paljon kaikkea pikkujuttua ja kun koneellakin vielä muokkasin. Mutta ehkä jossain 45 min kieppeillä yhteensä, en käy kyl vannomaan.
