At least I did it!
Few years ago I've started writing fantasy stories based on norse and celtic mythology. Lately I'm pushing myself to draw all the characters but it's a struggle
So I've begun with the most pleasant part - Sealgaire - 'the hunter', beloved wolf companion of my wolf's goddess. Yes, he's smiling, yes, he's calm and positive - to banance his lady's fury and madness
I wanted him exactly that way.
The wolf himself is based on most beautiful wolf I can imagine - Orca from WolfPark. That's my way to honor the wolf, who gave me inspiration for keep drawing. And for just keep going for that matter. So here's the most amazing reference photo by Monty Soan: [link]
It's funny that this pic wouldn't be done if I didn't go to last-minute shopping for paper and accidentally found my favorite pencil which I haven't seen in any shop for a long time. I've used half of it
