My land by Swift-Wolfen My land by Swift-Wolfen
I decided to try and do a proper picture with background and all in acrylic paints. Considering I can't even do a decent foreground with my paints yet, I think it was a bit of a mistake =p I've never, ever even so much as drawn a landscape before so I don't think the background went too badly, it just looks spazzed in a few places :p
The wolf was murder and I never did fix it properly >.< I can't do fur with paint, please don't shoot me for this awful attempt at a canine.
Background- 3-4 hours
Foreground- 2-3 hours
All in acrylics

Gorgeous piece :!:

I love the fur and the water, especially the reflections, is really great, too. :thumbsup:



P.S. If you dont like to do landscape-backgrounds, why not try Terragen, a free landscape render program ;-)

The colours are beutiful, a real autumn [sp?] feel to it. The texture of the fur is also really well done. Bottom line - Fuxing rawks. You really need more faith in your own blatant talent.

Oh that looks nice! The background looks pretty good despite the fact that it's slightly slanted. :) I really like the wolf! :)

Eeee, nice pic. I think the wolf is fine and you've done good on the fur. I can only imagine how hellish it is to paint fur, mainly because I'm too lazy to even attempt it :p Only criticism I have is the background looks sorta slanted. I don't know if that was deliberate, but for some reason it makes me dizzy after looking at it for a while @_@

Still, a great piece never-the-less :3
