Werewolf Weds. 6-27 by Viergacht Werewolf Weds. 6-27 by Viergacht
Werewolf Wednesday speedpaint, a little early. I wanted to use colors besides gray/blue/green for a change, and also do paint a werewolf in sunlight as opposed to moonlight.

Maybe she's a were-fox, maybe just a ginger werewolf. Fun fact: in the olden days, red hair was considered a sure sign someone was a witch or werewolf (there wasn't a lot of distinction back then, since witches could turn into wolves and werewolves got that way by selling their soul to Satan). Several folkloric werewolves are specifically described as being reddish-colored, but you hard ever see that in movies. The only one I can think of off the top of my head is Ginger in "Ginger Snaps", but as her lycanthropy progresses hair hair grows in white, so I don't know if she counts.

Absolutely beautiful :heart: I like that she could possibly be a were-fox (a kitsune maybe?)... then, or just a ginger werewolf hehe that made me laugh. Very ethereal piece :)

The shape of her eyes and ears lends me to think werefox over werewolf, but the idea of setting the pic in day rather than night is brilliant and not seen often.

I have to say, this is the most graceful and elegant werewolf transformation I think I've ever seen. It's not grody and visceral, but it's still down to earth and you can see that the body is indeed going through a change that can be felt. The lighting and color scheme make for a warm and eye catching image.

Beautiful. The colors are very pleasant and warm. Maybe she's changing back from her werewolf form as the sunlight rises?
Somehow she does look more like a werefox, but I think that has more to do with the chest-fluff not continuing throughout. But she' still gorgeous <3

I've always wanted to study folklore from different regions. Just can't think of a career where that would come into good use ;p

I loved Ginger Snaps (I've watched all 3 of the movies, and I preferred the prequel to the other 2.)

That's interesting information about the hair. I've read that in Rome Red and dark brown hair was prefered over blonde. From my understanding the women with blonde hair were traced back to opposing countries, I want to say Scandanavia or something (but don't quote me on it) that were kidnapped and sold into prostitiution during wars. So there became a stigma for a period of time in history where blonde hair on women was a red flag that the girl was "loose" or a prostitute.

I love the picture, its so warm and passionate. It makes one rethink how to draw werewolf/shapeshifter beings. Very Very Cool!

Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of feminine beauty, is often depicted as a red-head. That was probably carried over into the Roman counterpart/interpretation Venus.
Absolutely love the pic btw viergacht, the warm golds and browns send me straight to a summer sunset. Really evocative piece, and there's a werewolf/fox to boot! (Bit of a thing for furry 'monsters')

That's interesting . . . I do recall reading somewhere that blonde hair was prized in Rome at one point, and ladies would wear wigs or try all these horrible substances to bleach their hair lighter.
