OMG I'm so ready to be done with this... X_X

Fully detailed artistic freedom commission for :iconnitewulfe:. :hug: He granted me the blessing of drawing whatever I felt like, and this is what came to mind! My most detailed piece to date, and my first official art piece of 2013! :D
I really struggled with the water, and in the animation you'll see me go back and change stuff. This was a learning experience for me, and an extreme patience test, but I think I passed? Well, I'll let you be the judge.

Here I though you were just fantastic with chalk, but then you have to go and be awesome with other types of art, too? XD

Really, this is fabulous. I would never even guess that you had trouble with the water - it's flawless. :)

Very well done!! water has always been an issue with me especially with the reflections! However photoshop makes it easier where you can copy the main image and flip it to where you want it to be thankfully :)

Your patience really paid off! wonderful details! As much as I love art, I find it to be too painful to do at times with the amount of time it can take lol. awesome job and cant wait to see more!

copy.

theyve bred extensively with coyotes in western europe, so their pelts have sort of... mixed. explains the wolf like anatomy and yet coyote like colors. looks fantastic though. like ive said numerous times sugar, your art has improved leaps and bounds since i first started watching you. keep it up.
