Snowy sight by Tuonenkalla Snowy sight by Tuonenkalla
Another study.
I wanted to try how would werewolf's body work while hanging in tree (I somehow think I made it look too easy though). On the other hand, I wanted to test backgrounds again, also. First I used one good photo as an reference, but then I forgot it away. There wasn't that forest in the photo at all, since the depth of field was so small: I however had to make one, because the view didn't look high enough without some sight of what was there far away.
Hmm. I think it's ok as an study.

The character is my less or more lovely Danc'recian.

Markers, color pencils, white gouache.

Aah, tulee ihan vaaramaisemat mieleen tästä kuvasta. Herra on hyvin onnistunut, vähän kärtyn oloinen. Kivan hienovaraisesti olet saanut tunnetta mukaan työhön.

Climbing in the trees is fun, I have to agree. But lacking the snow isn't... well, from my point of view.

Long time ago since i faved an anthro - but this one is great - specially the climbing and the pose - ok it's more or las the same thing - but beautiful!

And great contrast - interesting use of snow!

Very nice! I think you've done a wonderful job! If I had anything to suggest, I'd say to be careful with the foreground and background, because the main tree looks almost way to big compared to the size of the similar tree behind it. Maybe try making that tree back there a little thinner, or hint the top branches of the main tree to show the werewolf is close to the top. Sorry to point that out but I figured since this was a study, I might as well try to help you out a bit! c: Aside from that everything looks really amazing! I really enjoy the textures :D

Thanks. As well thanks for your feedback. :)
You said that the main tree looks too big compared to the trees on the background... there is only one but. I intended it to be so - and I intended there to be space between the main tree and the others. Actually, quite much space, so going with the perspective, it should be that big. But since you pointed that out, I apparently haven't succeeded in my intentions. Maybe I should have tried to push the background trees more to the background, make real space between them and used some air, making them lighten. Or then there is something else.
Oh well. I got more studying! :D

Ah, I see. :) Maybe I should have worded it a bit differently, but what I meant about the tree in the background is that near the top its width is very good for the distance, but the further it get's to the bottom, it gets almost too thick. That's what I meant the first time, sorry to make it sound any bit confusing. ^^;

This really is a gorgeous picture, and that was the only flaw I see, even still as I look at it. :hug:

Aika vaikuttava, ja vaikka kirjoittelin jotain tummuudesta ja hahmon valaisun erilaisuudesta taustaan nähden, pidätyn nipottamasta koska kateuttahan se vain olisi. Olet aivan upea.

Ja nyt voin todeta ylpeänä että ainakin yritin pitää tämän seikan itsekin mielessä ja työskennellä sen mukaan. Eri asia näkyykö se lopputuloksessa.
Kiitokset~

Different fur tones near to black are fascinating. Not that I wouldn't like almost every different tones.

I bet it's not perfect (how could it be, since werewolves are just mythical creatures), but nice if it looks good.
