Aryte commission by Viergacht Aryte commission by Viergacht
. . . of his character as a werewolf.

This took me forever to finish, as I've been suffering from a rotator cuff injury/bursitis for a while now, which makes it quite painful to draw. Also, I started this as a completely different painting, but I got about halfway through it and decided it just wasn't working (I may finish it later as a different character). I had this other very rough werewolf sketch taking up space on the hard drive, used that instead with a completely new background. Anyways, I'm pretty happy with how this turned out, it's a different look than my usual wolfers.
There's a ton of detail jpg compression kind of devoured on this one. It was done at 300dpi in case it ever needs to be printed out.

I think it's safe to say I'll never get tired of drawing werewolves.

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-08-12
Aryte commission by *viergacht. Is it the terror of an unwanted, foreign body? Or is it the fear of losing control and hurting someone unintentionally? This in-between state is a consummate blend of still-human anatomy, but with strong suggestions of a more foreboding werewolf form to come. ( Suggested by lazywolf and Featured by KovoWolf )

I love this. The only thing that really gives me chills is his eye. The way he stares at me like that.
You can clearly tell that's the 'vanishing point' of this artwork! :)

Gods! The fear and hopelessness, the abject terror and wanting the viewer to run that is locked in those facial features. Absolutely amazing job capturing the human heart being smothered by the beast!

Never did I think I'd see a werewolf earn a Daily Deviation. There is hope for fantasy artists!

This is one of the more fantastic werewolves I've ever seen. I like that it's not just a stereotypical anthro like a lot of the wolfmen out there; rather, you still have some very human elements in his face and his hands. I quite enjoy the subtle blurring effect, as well. This DD was well-deserved!

To me it always seemed fun to be a werewolf (though I wouldn't want the ripping-humans-to shreds-part). But this picture makes me think otherwise! It's a very rare emotional werewolf piece of art. Well done!

Oh, so good...Just now I'm writing about a werewolf OC of mine, and I'm having trouble showing his emotions at his state. But here, you can feel it: the horror, the sadness, the anxiety, the anger...So perfect! :heart:
