This image is very awesome. The WereTigerWolf is intriguing. Though, it pulls me from my normal self to my former self to find something wrong, this work is spot on. It isn't too orange to where it would have more of a tiger color, but that works better for the wolf to be this tone. The stripes aren't boldly featured, though this seems to allow for a better suiting for the thicker fur featured here. The face is neither too wolf nor too tiger on the creature. The head has a more tiger appeal while the fur houses the fullness featured on a timberwolf. The mouth is jointly tigered and wolfed, too. Containing the extension(though I am perceiving that, rather than it being fully shown to what I will now state) that is normally present for the wolf's mouth and the width showing the power of a tiger's bite being present. The claws presents a bit more clinging to the wolf in color and the tiger on size. The paws are more akin to the human-like impression that is there. As does the six-pack abs. Amazing work. Something that I personally enjoy due to it combining my two fav animals with the humanistic quality. I don't have money, but if I did, I would as you to do a similar concept for me with slight alterations. Thank you for accepting his commission.
Thank you so much, your comments are lovely to hear - to witness someone taking the time to inspect my work and give detailed feedback! It's really fun to do hybrid animals, as of course there are no rules, and yet one has to pay close attention to the anatomy and features to get it right! Thank you again, it means a lot!
Well, thank you for being pleased with my comment. I was a shade nervous that. you might have been bothered by it when I looked back on it. So, to read your enjoyment of it is great. Thank you, yet again. I do have one slight add-on. You do have rules when creating such. Those rules that you follow are set by you and your imagination. So, as long as you are being true to that, then you are following the rules. Don't ever cheat them. You do and you feel shortchanged from your creation.
Also, though, I love the animal spirits featured there, as well.
You're welcome. I've never been totally taken to digital art, but you're converting me. It's probably funny that I should say that I'm getting hold of photoshop soon to do exactly this sort of thing anyway. That, and once I get my paypal sorted out, I'd probably get a commission from you. XD
Oh wow! I feel honored I love digital art AND traditional art, I am working to be an oil painter - and I do feel how I improve in my digital works does really help towards my traditional skills too. Also, oil paintings take months xD It is good to do digital work and have it done in a day or two, believe me! Let me know if you need any help, I am planning on putting up more tutorials once I get my christmas to do list all done. And I would love to!
You're welcome! I'm too much of a self-deprecator (being English) to think that I'd have that effect on you. XD
That's quite cool. I do like both, but I have a preference towards traditional. At the moment I only draw with graphite, and what I like about it is that you can look at the work from different angles; make it look 3D from a certain angle too. Oil painting sounds great, good luck with that! I struggle to work with colour at all, let alone oil paints. I know I will need your help, so any advice is more than welcome. I kind of fell of doing art for a few years because I never got any formal instruction, so unless I copied out a reference exactly, I couldn't draw as well as I wanted, which was frustrating. It's probably the reason I took up writing in the first place. Anyway I've managed though to get a idea of how to construct anthro anatomy, so I've started sketching again. So yeah, tutorials would be great. Cool. I thought I might as well say, but it will be a while until I sort things out. The intention is there though!
Oh no, worries thank you! Well, I am self-taught! I had a really cool art teacher in high school that was impressed with my work and basically just let me create my own curriculum and do my own thing! So really.. I have no credentials in art, just hard work to get my portfolio together! I was accepted into art school, but I decided against going, I think I am doing well enough without paying the 50 grande it would cost, haha. Yeah I love graphite! However, I get frustrated with it, I don't feel I have as much patience for it! You just have to keep drawing and consistently do what you can until you can appreciate it yourself as well!
Oh, that's pretty cool actually. In the art classes I had we were left alone to do our own thing, but that was because the teacher didn't want to teach... Hmm, I think it's a real shame that cost prevents talent getting into schools, colleges and university. Ability should determine who gets in, not who can afford to pay the fees. It makes me angry. Anyway, as you say, I have found that it is all about drawing consistently and having patience. I've pretty much overcome that block and I can now appreciate how things are coming along. I'm looking forward to posting the results of what I've been doing here while at university because I feel at least that they're a step in the right direction. Don't know what others will think though. XD
This is so BEAUTIFUL! Holy cow that detail on the character is amazing. And you can also see a hint of feline besides the stripes. You did this character, and his magical essence, justice. This is just so wonderful!
