Incredible work! Looks just like what I get PAID to do. You should really stt paid commisions if you haven't already. Beautiful technique on the fur but the nose seems a little big and kind of stands out. I love the background and faded trees, especially the faint ligting. Lovely work. The slight glow in the eyes ties it all together. The only things that need work are the whiskers could be a little thinner or left out altogether if necessary and it looks almost like you blurred the ears too much. The rims and inner fur are indestinguishable which in total is like a 10 seond fix XD I love it, very beautiful work!
This is an absolutely stunning piece, first off I want to say that I love the attention to detail and all the hard work you put into this that is very obvious. For critiquing, all I might suggest would be maybe have a bit more contrast to show more depth to the fur and eyes and perhaps make the background a little more blurred next time to show that he's closer to the viewer than the ground is. The fur on the ends might be a little too thick as well unless you wanted this particular wolf have have thicker fur. Other than that it's perfect and the anatomy is stunning.
This is an amazing piece and I can't wait to see more from you!
I've seen the digitally mastered form of this picture before. the original, which I have, was created by someone else in a regular digital studio. the original picture was also made to look very realistic, much like the wolves in twilight...please prove me wrong...but I'm sure I have the original for this picture or possibly the ref.
