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 )

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:

ALSO...protip since you mention jpeg compression issues. If you haven't done so, try resizing to a PNG before uploading here. I used to have this same problem before switching. You'll get better detail preservation, especially if you use bicubic-sharpen as the resize algorithm.
