I rarely get bloody themes so I was having much fun doing this one ^^ I like these dark/emotional subjects in art :)

The texture and water like texture you have given this is simply uncanny. I really like what you have portrayed here. It is like a blood splattered gloried picture. Just marvelous. Speaking of which, the amount of blook here is not overtly done and to me, it looks quite calculated so I guess what I am saying is that this holds balance and beside that it steers anyway from anything in this deviation that might be too distracting. I just thought from the posture of the creature to the effects used here, you did an excellent job. You have much to be proud of.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
30 out of 41 deviants thought this was fair.

First off, i would like to say that this came out pretty good. Ok what i think is that the background looks very nice with that texture and your technique is great except that it is a well used and known technique, but is still beautiful. Also the fur effect is excellent along with the muscles, and bones. What I see is that the neck looks just a tad thin along with the top of the front leg. The back near the rump of the wolf looks a little to straight you have to remember that the spine is curvy all the way and that the tail is part of the spine so you should perhaps shorten the tail by like a tiny bit but if thats how it was designed then it fine. What i think you can do to improve is look at some muscle and bone charts in order to make it extra realistic ^^. Also you could add some shading to the blood in order to make it a little more realistic as well. In all the think the art piece is very well done. Keep up the good work. ^^

This is very cool! I love the pose, it has a deeper meaning than just sort of being there, like this wolfie creature is looking up and seeing hope. I like how this creature is also sort of glowing against the dark background.

I'm also jealous XD I have never had a knack for painting, and this looks like it's done in water color I believe? Which from what I remember from past experiences with paints can be a pain, so bravo!

This is fantastic! You did a really good job of accurately depicting the bone and muscle structure with your shading. It's a little difficult to get a clear definition of the left hind leg. But other than that, everything else is fantastic. Love the way you did the blood and the colors are wonderful.

Thunderflight Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2010  Student Traditional Artist
Ohwow. this is simply fantastic. |D

I love the creature's expression, and the soft wash of colors in the background. Did you use watercolors on this? It looks like a painting. Well, either way, this is unbelievably beautiful. Your art is always so dynamic. <3

Ohoho. I most likely will not be able to afford it, but how much are your commissions? |D

SolusFallenwolf Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2010
very nice.... i think this is well done and really looks good... if anything has to be pointed out then it'd hae to be how it seems the blood is being blown away from his face.... yet if you look at the mane and tail there's no wind sorry i had to say it... overall i love your pic though

Just as stunning as your pencil work, Ulaa <3 I love the deep, intense feeling in this; it says enough without describing c': I agree with jamjams about the glow effect too C: It gives it a really surreal look and it binds the pic together even more <3 The shading's awesome too, and i love the blues in there <3

it's late, so i can't say much. xD
