Within the Blizzard by Koto-wari Within the Blizzard by Koto-wari
Okay... something went wrong while changing the files...

LEt me try to put again what I put here. ^^;

Other version: [link]

^^; I kinda liked this one better. XD Sorry, Tee~ ^^;

Anyways, where was I...

So here it is, my Wolf Drawing. I had to use a photograph of a wolf to get the anatomy more or less right. My wolfs always tend to look a little feline. >_>
To begin with, the front paws looked a little to long. So I had to edit. To bad I already merged the visible layers (those of the wolf without the background). It's easier to do the paint, rub and blur thing when everything's one layer. D:

It's supposed to be some sort of Elementary wolf (Spirit of Snow or Blizzard or something like that). That's why he has so many long strands of furr and why his eyes are not 'natural'-like. Tried though, but failed. It looked better like this.

I don't like drawing snow... to much work. -shot'd-

I got this idea while playing Twilight Princess (zelda). You could say this wolf is based on the White Wolfos that roam on Snowpeak Mountain. They're just gorgeous. :heart: <strike>Unlike those in TP and MM.</strike>
But it's not supposed to be a wolfos... get it? It is one, but it isn't. So it's technically not fanart. It gets confusing like that....

Oh, well. This is (c) to me.

And what's the fullview = no watermark thing? >:

Well whatever it is, it is beautiful! :'D I like his eye like that. It's like his coat/fur is made of ice and his eye is a gem or a gleaming rock embedded underneath the frosty layer. I love the way you shaded his hind leg, you know, the joint where this tuft of fur is attached to. It's anatomically completely perfect and it looks awesome! I also like his mane :3

You're welcome! :heart: I always have trouble drawing them too, they're never the right angle or length or anything else D< I must learn from the great wolf-drawing artists like Pearleden or something...

Exactly. D: I had drawn the frong paw too long, and I had to edit... but I had already merged the visible layers... ^^;
Eh, excuse me, but who? :o

Oh that's annoying. I don't work too much with layers though so I always save and copy/paste a lot.

Pearleden's work used to dominate the front page. I'm surprised you're not familiar with her work. Wolves are so popular in dA nowadays, so loads of wolf artists made front page. Not anymore since v6 though :P I like her work, but the others not so much. Anyway I got a lot to learn from her anatomy skills.

You don't work too much with layers? *speechless*
And you have such detailed work. :O

Well, that's probably because I rarely visit the frontpage. ^^; When I get on deviantart I always use the history option. So I either get on my main page or directly in my messages. ^^; I should check out the front page more often. ^^;

I should check her gallery out sometimes. =D

Erm, yes, but layers and me don´t really get along. Also because my Painter Program can no longer save in .riff files (where he keeps the layers intact) so I don't even have a choice, haha. But I have different ways of adjusting things.

Sometimes you can find pretty cool stuff there :3 I usually only like one or two deviations from the front page, but every now and then I find awesome stuff :D

Oh! That's kinda bad. =/ I don't know what I would do without layers. I've grown so used to them now. :o
But yes, if you know what to do, that's better. :D

Uhuh... I'll just look at it more. =3
And I looked a ther gallery yesterday and I realised I've seen some of her work before. =3 Mainly those based on Okami. Although I like her work, there's something in her style that I don't like. XD
